Alfa Romeo Sauber F1 Team presents its 2018 charger!


The Alfa Romeo Sauber F1 Team has officially unveiled its 2018 C37 charger, the car it hopes will move the Swiss outfit up the grid.

The C37's livery is almost identical to the scheme presented at the end of last year when the Swiss outfit announced its Alfa Romeo partnership.

The legendary Italian brand obviously figures prominently on the car's bodywork, while at the rear, Sauber's Marcus Ericsson and Charles Leclerc will be powered by 2018 y a current-spec Ferrari engine.

Looking a little closer at the C37, one's first impression of a straightforward design changes, as a few interesting engineering aspects are noticed, like the raised front suspension and the car's shallow nose, similar to Force India's 2017 design.

Sauber has also opted for a re-profiling of the mandatory Halo as the 2018 technical rules allow. All in all, not a bad looking racing car, with some nice innovation.

"It is great to finally reveal the C37 today," says Sauber tech boss Jorg Zander.

"The 2018 challenger is the result of the hard work that everyone in the factory has put in over the last few months.

"Speaking about the C37, the car philosophy is much different to that of the C36. The aerodynamic concept has changed significantly, and the C37 has several new features in comparison to its predecessor," he added.

"We are positive that the new concept offers us more opportunities and will help us to make improvements during the course of the season.

"The 2018 Ferrari engine will also give us a boost in terms of our performance. We hope that we will make progress with the C37 and that we are more competitive compared to 2017."

Sauber also released a short video blending the team's image and car with some period footage of Alfa Romeo's racing history.
