The team plans to do it at the Circuit de Montmeló on February 21.
The Sauber-Alfa Romero C37 will be released on February 20 online. The new project of Sauber, together with the collaboration of Alfa Romeo and above, all the help of Ferrari. The Italian team will supply them with the power unit of this same year. Sauber should improve without no doubt, the results obtained last season. Sauber, placed at the end of the grid, had the great disadvantage of mounting an old engine which did not improve as the season was passing and the car performance went down as the raes went by.
Montmeló will see how the first F1 car to run this season, on its new asphalt, is the C37 of Sauber and Alfa Romeo, in a filming day that is held just a day after its introduction to the world. On February 21, therefore, the C37 will take its first steps, with 100 km as the maximum length traveled during filming.
It will be a first taste of what can be seen a week later in the tests that are held on the same circuit from February 26 to March 1. It will also be the first opportunity to see Charles Leclerc at the wheel of his new car. It is expected that he and his teammate Marcus Ericsson exchange the seat during the recording.
The tires that will be use by Sauber are not the official of next season. Pirelli gives to the teams a special ones for for these kind of events. The intention is that the teams can not benefit from valid data on the operation of the new tires.
On the same day as Sauber, they will also drive Toro Rosso in the Misano circuit and on the 22nd they will do the same Mercedes in Silverstone and Mclaren in Navarra. Last year, Sauber already did a filming day at the Barcelona-Catalunya Circuit.
