The Sauber C14 was a Formula One car for the 1995 season. The number 29 seat was taken by Karl Wendlinger and the number 30 seat was taken by Heinz-Harald Frentzen. However, Wendlinger underperformed and was soon replaced by Jean-Christophe Boullion for most of the remainder of the year. The team's test driver was Norberto Fontana. The engine was a Ford ECA Zetec-R 3.0 V8. The team's main sponsor was Red Bull. It was the first year of many in Sauber-Red Bull partnership.
This was the first Formula One car to run on Petronas fuel.
The car was launched and raced in the season's early races with a distinctive narrow and drooping nose. At the San Marino GP, this was replaced by a more conventional raised nose carrying the front wing underneath on twin supports. Thus the car became a wholly unremarkable mid-1990s F1 midfielder, although it was notable in terms of securing Sauber's first F1 podium finish with Frentzen 3rd in Italy.
