Sauber has confirmed that it will unveil its new Formula 1 car, the C36, on February 20 ahead of the 2017 season.

Sauber finished 10th in last year’s constructors’ championship in what proved to be a season of survival for the Swiss outfit, with its long-term future being secured following a takeover in July.

On Friday, Sauber confirmed that its new car, the C36, would be unveiled on February 20, making it the earliest date yet for a 2017 F1 launch.

Sauber has already confirmed its driver line-up for 2017, with the returning Marcus Ericsson set to be joined by Mercedes junior Pascal Wehrlein, who enters his second season in F1.

Sauber’s C36 will hit the track in public for the first time on February 27 at the start of pre-season testing in Barcelona, Spain.
