So take it from someone who has driven in Formula 1, and has massive experience with racing hybrid cars. Allan McNish is probably the most qualified person to be explaining how the cars will feel in Formula 1 for 2014.
Besides, it’s always good to get a Shakedown video where a former driver is the star. You learn so much about how they think. Watch and enjoy.
I feel that Sauber F1 create some of the best Formula 1 demonstration videos around. The team does a stellar job providing awesome drama around the build-up to the 2013 season and to the new Sauber C32.
I think that Sauber is going to be one of the surprise dark horses in the 2013 season. Just look at those sidepods! (#nerdgasm) I cannot wait for the racing to start this weekend!
Last season, Sauber had their most competitive season in Formula 1. Scoring four podiums, the team is hoping that the team’s new contender will be able to do one better.
What I personally love about the new car has nothing to do with the performance changes of the car. It’s the new livery. I’m loving the grey throwback, which reminds me a bit of the older Sauber cars from ’93 and 94′.
Will this be the car that brings Nico Hulkenburg closer to a Ferrari drive? Will this be the first Sauber car to score a Formula 1 victory? I hope so, on both fronts. I’m probably more excited about this car, than any other car this year.
Of course, check out the launch presentation after the jump.
What happens when you slice a Formula 1 car up the middle?
You learn a hell of alot. Sauber F1 Team has taken the last two years to slice one of their older Formula 1 cars into a cutaway model, as an instructional tool to teach people more about how a Formula 1 car works.
Watch. Learn. Discuss.
Ever since Sauber’s surprise podium finish last week, the team has been in the media spotlight. Rightfully so! The team’s involvement with social media has been skyrocketing. For example the team, Kaumi Kobayashi and Sergio Perez all have Twitter accounts.
Sauber is also good with releasing ‘sneak-peak’ videos about how the team works. In this latest cut, Sergio ‘Checo’ Perez introduces us to the team that helped him to his latest race podium. Other teams have videos much like this, like Ferrari, but they lack the rough ‘style’ that these do.
Well wonder no more! Apologies the lack of audio in these videos, but this is a good time to turn on some quality music while you visually tour the Sauber F1 factory.
With the re-introduction of Willem Toet returning to his old role as Sauber’s head of aerodynamics, I thought this was a fitting post.
