The Sauber C35 is a Formula One racing car designed by Sauber to compete in the 2016 Formula One season. The car was driven by Marcus Ericsson and Felipe Nasr,[1] and used the Ferrari 061 power unit.

Competitiveness[edit]

During the first half of the season, the car proved to be less competitive compared to its predecessor due to less development over winter, caused by financial problems of the team.

The team scored its only points of the season during the dramatic 2016 Brazilian Grand Prix in very wet conditions. The team also overtook their nearest rivals, Manor, in the constructors' championship when Felipe Nasr crossed the line in 9th, which was enough to give them 10th place in the constructors' championship.
