Sauber are the first team to announce that their 2013 car has passed the FIA’s mandatory safety tests. The car can now be run in winter testing and is approved, from a safety point of view, for racing in the 2013 season.
Sauber F1 Team @OfficialSF1Team tweeted today: “The C32 chassis and safety structures have passed their FIA safety tests. So, fully homologated and ready for winter testing (5. Feb). #F1”
The announcement also confirms the model number (C32) of the new car, and that it will be run at the first test in Jerez, Spain which starts on 5 February 2013. The car is not the only new part of the team for next season – an all-new driver line-up of Nico Hulkenberg, Esteban Gutiérrez and test and reserve driver Robin Frijns will contest the 2013 championship for Sauber.
