Designer Matt Morris admitted the Ferrari-powered C32, no longer predominantly white but now coloured graphite with red and white flashes, is a "visually very different" single seater to its 2012 predecessor.

One major difference is the former clear 'step' in the nose, which is now effectively housed in an apparently complex aerodynamic solution -- something not seen yet as Sauber became the fifth team to launch after Lotus, McLaren, Ferrari and Force India.

Team boss Monisha Kaltenborn confirmed: "The C32 is based on its predecessor, which was a very competitive car."

Racing the new, darker Sauber this year will be Nico Hulkenberg, who has moved from Force India, and Mexican rookie Esteban Gutierrez.
