Sauber F1 released the first image of its 2017 C36-Ferrari

Sauber F1 team has released the first image of its 2017 F1 car, with the Ferrari-powered C36 generous a shark fin and a new blue and gold livery.

Sauber is the second car designed with the brand news 2017 F1 rules, following the first images of the 2017 Williams breaking cover on Friday.

The Sauber C36-Ferrari is a car which, due to the new technical regulations, has been redesigned from scratch. There is not a single part that could be adopted from its C35 predecessor.

In 2017, the Ferrari powertrain in the Abu Dhabi 2016 configuration will be used initially together with the C36. One of the changes this season is that only four of the six units of a powertrain can be changed without penalty. In the next few years the number will be further reduced, which is why the manufacturers are going to put greater emphasis on the durability than on the top speed of their units.

Jörg Zander regards the 2016-spec engine as “a tried and tested system with higher durability to begin with.” In addition, with respect to the design resources in planning the development of the C36, Jörg Zander says that “being able to get started early and defining the engine environment was an advantage because the team was familiar with the engine and the transmission as well as the cooling requirements the engine entailed.”
