Sauber rolls out the C29

NEWS STORY
31/01/2010

On the eve of the start of the first official F1 test of 2010, the BMW Sauber F1 team has rolled out its Ferrari-engined C29 at the Ricardo Tormo in Valencia.

Sixth place in last year's constructors' standings (as BMW) will serve as a starting point for the new season for the Swiss team whose aim is to establish itself at this level despite a lower budget and reduction in manpower. This demands creative thinking and an increased level of efficiency.

"The last few months have been very intense for us," said team boss and owner Peter Sauber. "First we had to battle to secure the survival of the team and then we focused on putting a strong set-up in place for the future. The technical preparation of the 2010 car has continued uninterrupted and according to plan since the spring of 2009, despite all the turmoil. We have a long tradition of bringing together an up-and-coming youngster and an experienced campaigner as a driver combination - and it's an approach that has brought us a lot of success. Pedro has been working at the highest level technically for many years and for a top team, and we can benefit as a team from this experience. Young Kamui also has a lot to offer us, and last year he impressed me particularly in Abu Dhabi."

"At last I can feel like a proper racing driver again," said Pedro de la Rosa. "I've really missed the competition out on the track. At the same time, though, I've learned a lot technically and on the systems side, and now I want to bring that knowledge to the team."

"I'm very proud that Peter Sauber has shown so much faith in me and I'm determined not to disappoint him," added Kamui Kobayashi. "My aim is that he will end up being proud of me as well."
