Sauber have launched their 2013 car, the Sauber C32, from their Hinwil, Switzerland base. This will be the team's 20th season in Formula 1, and the team are aiming for 5th place - which they lost out on by 16 points last season.

The main visual differences from the C31 to the C32 are the sidepods, the colour, and the nose. The sidepods are now much smaller and the team has changed the car from mostly white, to grey. The team has also taken advantage of the vanity panel, like Ferrari, Force India and McLaren have.

Drivers Nico Hülkenberg and Esteban Gutiérrez unveiled the car, and both of them are hoping for more success than in 2012.

Monisha Kaltenborn said: “We have very high expectations of them and they know that.”
The car will be put in action on Tuesday at the pre-season test session in Jerez.
