Sauber confirms Friday launch date, and HP partnership


Sauber will launch its new C34 chassis on Friday, the team has confirmed on Tuesday.

The new chassis will need to be an improvement upon the C33 of 2014, where Adrian Sutil and Esteban Gutierrez endured the team’s first ever scoreless season in more than 20 years of competition dating to 1993.

Meanwhile the new pairing of Felipe Nasr and Marcus Ericsson will have at least one new partner as well in the form of Hewlett-Packard (HP).

This will give the team access to all the latest technologies from the company, particularly to help aid the team’s CFD development.

“Together with the Hewlett-Packard HPC Competence Center in Grenoble, the high technical competence has allowed us to develop a high performance computer which is based on the most innovative technologies of Hewlett-Packard,” team principal Monisha Kaltenborn said in a release. “This will improve our performance in the area of CFD.”
