Sauber has announced that it will launch its new car - the C32 - on February 2 at its Hinwil base in Switzerland.

The team confirmed back in December that the new car had passed all of its FIA crash tests and was ready for pre-season testing, which begins in Jerez on February 5. Having launched last year's car on the first day of testing at the circuit, the team has confirmed this year's date via a press release and announced the car will be unveiled at its headquarters.

"The Sauber F1 Team have built on the strong foundations laid down during the 2012 season and, following a winter of hard work, we are nearly ready to present our new car," the press release read.

Sauber is fielding an all-new driver line-up this season, with Nico Hulkenberg and Esteban Gutierrez replacing Sergio Perez and Kamui Kobayashi.
