Sauber to miss F1 test­ing in Barca

7 Days in Dubai - - SPORT -

The fi­nan­cially strug­gling Sauber team will miss the first in-sea­son test in Barcelona later this month. The Swiss team said they did not have a car up­date nor a test driver who meets the re­quire­ments. F1 reg­u­la­tions state that teams must al­lo­cate at least two of the four in-sea­son test days to young driv­ers. Sauber were the last team to test their 2016 car be­fore the sea­son started and con­firmed re­cently that monthly salaries were paid late in Fe­bru­ary and March.
