F1 Racing - - TEAM BY TEAM -

WHAT’S NEW ? Wehrlein’s pre-sea­son prep was scup­pered when he hurt his neck in a crash at the Race of Cham­pi­ons event. He missed the rst test, and Fer­rari’s re­serve driver An­to­nio Giov­inazzi took his place. Tech­ni­cal di­rec­tor Jörg Zan­der re­joins the team, and is re­struc­tur­ing as part of an efciency drive. His aim is to es­tab­lish Sauber in the mid-eld.

F1 RA CING’S VER­DICT De­spite Zan­der’s ar­rival, the C36 isn’t go­ing to set the world on re, so ex­pect another difcult sea­son for these peren­nial back­mark­ers.
