Sauber delighted at turn of speed with new C21
THE Sauber team was very confident at the launch of the new C21 that the car was going to be better than the 2001 car but testing in Barcelona has shown that the car is very impressive indeed - particularly as the Swiss team is not in need of new sponsorship and so does not have any reason to set super-quick testing times. The fact that the team is going faster than some of the established frontrunners should not, however, be taken too seriously as the big teams traditionally do not show their hand before practice at the Australian Grand Prix. Until then teams can calculate the fastest lap times possible without letting the world know and thus creating a target time for the opposition.
