Thee team is currently building a brand new windtunnel facility near the Sauber factory in Hinwil and thus should be finished by the end of 2003. This will be overseen by Ireland's Seamus Malarky, the team's head of aerodynamics whose teams spends around 40 weeks a year in the Emmen windtunnel which Sauber currently uses. The $50m program is the largest undertaken by the team. The new tunnel will allow the team to use a full sized model on a stainless steel rolling road.
