Presentation Sauber 2011  With new season testing just around the corner and with the release dates of the new 2012 Formula1 Championship challengers more or less confirmed we decided to let you all know how the presentation schedule will look, just a day before the the launch of the McLaren’s MP4/27. Among the latest teams to conform the official launch was Williams F1 Team who just release the date of it’s FW34 this afternoon.

  The two teams that will suffer the longest delay are HRT F1 Team (no surprise here) and Marussia Racing, and it seems that both teams are struggling to put together the 2012 car, and while Marussia has a solid working base HRT is keep relocating itself, first from Germany to Valencia and then in the middle of the process a decision was made to move to Madrid complicating further the construction of the car.

  Another interesting thing is the Mercedes engine that will be supplied this year, with McLaren and Mercedes AMG Petronas sharing same engine Mercedes FO108Y while Sahara Force India will receive a slightly different one Mercedes FO108.
