2013 Spanish Grand PrixPosted on | Author Keith Collantine

Nico Hulkenberg, Sauber, Shanghai, 2013Sauber are hoping their aerodynamic upgrades for the Spanish Grand Prix will move them up the field after a disappointing start to the season.

A revised rear wing is among the aerodynamic changes planned for the C32 at next week’s race.

Head of track engineering Tom McCullough said: “We have some further aero updates, including a modified rear wing, and we will be evaluating these during Friday practice.”

“Qualifying is particularly important here as overtaking can be difficult in the race,” he added. “Our target for the race is to finish with both cars in the points.”

Nico Hulkenberg led the Chinese Grand Prix for the team but fell to tenth by the chequered flag. That and his eighth-place finish in Malaysia have given the team just five points from the first four races, 27 less than they had this time last year.
