Sauber C35 passes crash tests

Editor

The Sauber team has announced that their chassis is the latest to pass the mandatory FIA crash tests.

Sauber confirmed on Monday that their pre-season preparations were on track as the C35 was homologated by the FIA.

“YAY!” the team tweeted. “The Sauber C35 did it! Nose & chassis passed the static & dynamic crash tests!”

But despite the new chassis getting the go-ahead from the FIA, Sauber will not use it in the opening pre-season test.

It was revealed earlier this year that the team plans to use a modified version of last year’s C34 at the first Barcelona outing while the new car will run at the second.
