Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

The Sauber team will con­tinue to use 2016-spec Fer­rari engines in F1 next year. The Swiss squad made the de­ci­sion ear­lier this sea­son be­liev­ing the sta­ble en­gine reg­u­la­tions will only lead to small per­for­mance gains for 2017. “The prime rea­son for it was that we re­ally wanted to have the abil­ity to fo­cus more on the chas­sis de­vel­op­ment,” said boss Mon­isha Kal­tenborn. “This de­ci­sion was taken when the rules were not 100 per cent sure. We de­cided to go this way in the early part of the year, to be sure that if last minute changes come up we can re­act to them while fo­cus­ing on chas­sis de­vel­op­ment.”
