Sauber announces launch date for 2019 F1 car
By:
Jan 21, 2019, 5:39 PM

Sauber's 2019 Formula 1 car will be officially unveiled on the first day of pre-season testing.

Last year the Swiss team revealed its challenger in an online launch one week before the first test began.

However, pre-season testing starts eight days earlier this year, so Sauber will present its Alfa Romeo-backed 2019 car in the Barcelona pitlane on February 18.

It is the first team to commit to a pitlane roll-out for its launch, with Haas and Toro Rosso expected to do the same.

However, Sauber has also been linked with an early shakedown, with speculation linking it to completing a promotional event at Ferrari's Italian test track Fiorano for February 14.

Sauber made major progress in 2018 with an up-to-date Ferrari engine and greater technical investment.

It finished eighth in the constructors' championship and "pushed like hell" early with the development of its 2019 car.

F1’s pre-season key dates so far:

February 12: Renault launch

February 13: Racing Point launch

February 14: McLaren launch

February 15: Ferrari launch

February 18: Sauber launch; first pre-season test begins

February 26-March 1: Second pre-season test
