The Sauber C29 is a Formula 1 racing car and was the racing car of the Sauber racing team for the 2010 Formula 1 season .

Technology and development

After BMW withdrew , this was the Swiss team's first self-build since 2005 . The vehicle is powered by a Ferrari type 056 2.4 V8. It was developed by the technical director Willy Rampf , the chief designer Christoph Zimmermann and the head of the aerodynamics department, Seamus Mullarkey .

2010 season

It was initially piloted by Kamui Kobayashi and Pedro de la Rosa . The latter was replaced by Nick Heidfeld after the 14th race of the season . The presentation took place on 31 January 2010 at the Spanish Valencia instead.

At the debut race, the Bahrain Grand Prix , both cars retired due to hydraulic damage. In the second race of the season, the Australian Grand Prix , Pedro de la Rosa crossed the finish line in twelfth place, while his team-mate had to retire prematurely after a serious accident on the first lap. In the third round, the Malaysian Grand Prix , both drivers retired early. This time the Ferrari engine broke down on both vehicles, and on de la Rosa it was already on the grid lap. In the following races the failure rate remained high - only in Spain was Kobayashi able to achieve a 12th place. It wasn't until the seventh race of the season that both drivers managed to bring their car to the finish line for the first time. De la Rosa finished eleventh in Turkey , Kobayashi even in tenth, scoring the team's first point of the season.

After the next race ended with a total failure, the reliability improved significantly in the second half of the season. The team was now able to collect points regularly and Kobayashi achieved the best result of the season with a sixth place at the British Grand Prix . In the end, Sauber had 44 points and finished the season in eighth place in the constructors' championship.
