Sauber have become the next team to show the world their 2013 challenger, the C32.
The covers were pulled off the car shortly after 11am GMT at the team’s base in Hinwil by Nico Hulkenberg and Esteban Gutierrez, both of whom are racing with Sauber for the first time.
As you can see from the picture, the car is radically different from last year. The team have ditched the stepped nose by using a high wall around the step but the most noticeable difference is the colour scheme on the car, ditching the white livery for a grey one.
Lotus, McLaren, Ferrari and Force India all proceeded today’s launch with Red Bull following tomorrow, Mercedes and Toro Rosso on Monday with Marussia and Caterham launching on Tuesday morning. Williams have delayed launching the FW35 until just before the second pre-season test.
