F1 2017: This is what Formula One will look like next season

The vehicle will utilize a 2016 Ferrari engine, a decision made ostensibly for reliability and because it gave the team a head start on developing the auto, without having to wait for the spec of the 2017 unit to be finalized.

The Sauber team is the only team with Ferrari, Haas and Toro Rosso, which is not based in England, and is 25 years old in Formula 1.

The new Sauber features numerous design cues expected of the new 2017 cars - a tail fin [disguised in black], and reshaped front and rear wings.

The C36 shows the impact of the new regulations with a wider and angled front wing, lower and swept-back rear wing, while a shark fin is used on the engine cover. Overall width of the auto is now 2,000 mm (from 1,800 mm), matched by an increased front wing span of 1,800 mm (up by 150 mm). "In total, this means more downforce, more grip and, as a result, faster lap times". With the new regulation changes this 2017, the Formula 1 playing field has been leveled, allowing even the smaller teams to have new opportunities.

The Sauber C36-Ferrari was designed with an emphasis on "aerodynamic stability" rather than maximising downforce performance.

Sauber Motorsport AG just unveiled its anniversary vehicle for 2017 - the C36 Ferrari.

One dead, 20 injured as train derails in Belgium
The train came off the tracks close to Brussels, and a Belgian train official confirmed that several people have been injured. Police officers and officials stand next to a train after it derailed in Kessel-Lo, Leuven, on February 18, 2017.

Sauber believe they will be able to make up for any loss of power performance through having a supremely aerodynamic chassis, and so do not believe they will fall into the same trap, only time will tell on that front.

Sauber has revealed the first images of its 2017 contender, the C36-Ferrari.

Work on the new auto was focused on reducing the drag coefficient (due to the wider tires) to a minimum as well as achieving a significant weight reduction, for instance by means of the new roll structure.

"The width of the front tyres has increased from 245 to 305 mm, that of the rear tyres from 325 to 405 mm". With the tires one might be able to mask deficits and get development concepts to work better. Although new rules can jumble things up at the top of the ranking, rule changes tend to favour larger teams.

"It's a tried and tested system with higher durability to begin with".
