Sauber today present its new C30 car in Valencia, with the goal of providing greater consistency and more points finishes in 2011. The new C30 features a fully integrated blown diffuser, and the team has been able to sculpt the sidepods more aggressively through fitting its radiators more vertically. Sauber has also opted to use a single mounting for its rear-wing, rather than the twin-mounting arrangement it used on the C29.
Peter Sauber, team principal said:
"We want to finish in the points regularly and clearly improve our position in the FIA Formula 1 constructors' world championship. 2010 marked the 41st year of our company history and one of the most difficult. Never before had we faced such reliability problems, but we managed to overcome them in the second half of the season. We implemented some well-considered structural changes. The appointment of James Key as Technical Director already bore fruit last season, and he is now in charge of development of the Sauber C30. At the same time, we have managed to secure our business foundation for the 2011 season. In these economically straitened times that is something we can be proud of too."
