January 31 launch for BMW Sauber team

User Rating: / 1
BMW Sauber have announced that they will unveil their new car in Valencia later this month. The launch will be held on January 31, the day before the first official three-day test of 2010 gets underway at the Spanish track.

The team, whose name has yet to be officially confirmed on the FIA's 2010 entry list, will be hoping the new machine allows them to improve on their poor 2009 season, which saw them finish a disappointing sixth in the championship. This performance, coupled with the global financial crisis, prompted German carmaker BMW to withdraw from the sport at the end of last year.

Original founder Peter Sauber has since bought back the Swiss team and the returning team principal will be in attendance at the launch event, alongside technical director Willy Rampf, recently-signed driver Kamui Kobayashi and his yet-to-be-confirmed team mate.

With BMW engines no longer at their disposal, the new Sauber is expected to be powered by Ferrari.
