‘If Shrek was in F1’ - Fans BLAST team’s new 2024 car

Fans are unimpressed with Stake F1 Team’s striking new livery ahead of the start of the 2024 Formula 1 season.

Featuring a heavy dose of green, it has attracted comparisons to Shrek and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles from those who are relatively unenthusiastic about the new paint scheme.

Following a difficult 2023 campaign, the newly-renamed Sauber F1 team will be hoping that this car performs better on track than last year’s did.

The team finished ninth in the 2023 constructors’ standings, only four points ahead of last placed Haas at the foot of the table.

Sauber enter the season with a new title sponsor in the form of Stake - bringing with them a striking new livery
The C44 will hit the track in Bahrain for testing between 21-23 February

New dawn for Sauber in F1

The C44 will hit the track for the first time at pre-season testing in Bahrain between 21-23 February.

Stake are replacing the outgoing Alfa Romeo as title sponsor of Sauber, who backed them for six seasons between 2018 and 2023.

Audi will take over the reigns of the team from 2026, turning it into a works programme as Formula 1 enters a new era of technical regulations.

Drivers Valtteri Bottas and Zhou Guanyu are in their third year together at the team and will be hoping that this year’s car goes slightly faster than their previous iterations have.

If the car turns out to be as bad as they blast the livery for being, they could be in for a long season ahead.
