http://www.autosport.com/news/report.php/id/117368 - talk of increasing the size of the rear tyres, to something like the size they were in the 70's. If we end up in 2017 with giant tyres and 1000HP engines, it'll be a good year.
This...this would be pretty awesome. A possibly over the top but pretty cool way to drag back F1 fans who've left in the last several years.

They smelled of pubs, and Wormwood Scrubs, and too many right-wing meetings.

So I twatted them with a magic yo-yo. Because, hell, why not?


Monisha Kaltenborn can't be having a great time, having taken over running Sauber during their best results since the BMW era and then overseeing their plunge into useless anonymity - beaten by a team that went bust before the season ended and had one driver in a coma. Even Caterham was at least being talked about, however negatively, but did a Sauber do anything of note last year other than get flipped upside down by Crashtor?

Last season being my first, Sauber is a completely anonymous team to me. At least Pastor gives Lotus some personality.

They used to be the team with the rep of being great talent scouts and doing a lot with limited resources. Last year was utterly embarrassing.

Huski Chocolate is a lifestyle, not only a product. It's about adventure & expedition. Living life to the fullest. It's a perfect recovery drink after training, because of the healthy carbohydrate and protein content, easy to digest and perfect for replenishing tired muscles.

last year sucked for sauber but every other post-BMW year was normal for them, they've always been respectable backmarkers. they've shed a lot of top talent to other teams in recent years and were hit hard by the increased cost of the new power units, it's pretty simple. ericsson will bring a lot of money, have to imagine ferrari is giving them a discount on engines in return for hosting marciello, and nasr is a very typical sauber driver (i.e. good). they also still have outstanding facilities. i wouldn't worry.

Its amazing that Sauber went so far downhill so quickly, from Perez and Kobayashi getting top 3 finishes in 2012 down to last year's poo poo show.

the C31 was designed by james key, had a much better engine and much better drivers, what exactly is amazing about them being worse without any of that

Is that a challenge?

There was a big article in Racecar Engineering a couple of months ago about why the Sauber sucked so hard this year, they were surprisingly candid about it. One big problem they had was the engine packaging and cooling requirements weren't finalised until very late which compromised the rest of the car.

I'll grab some quotes from it when I get home.
