Formula 1 Sauber C16-04: on the way to the podium

The Sauber C16 was the car with which the Sauber Formula 1 team competed in the 1997 season. That season also marked the new partnership between Sauber and Ferrari, a collaboration that lasted until 2006. The Sauber C16 was initially driven by Johnny Herbert, who was in his second season with Sauber, and Nicola Larini, who left the team after five races, using the Ferrari engines used in the previous season's F310. Larini was succeeded by Gianni Morbidelli and Norberto Fontana, but all of these drivers were far outshone by Herbert who delivered a stunning season for the team, with the third podium in team history at the 1997 Hungarian Grand Prix in the Sauber C16, beating two Ferraris in the process.

Peter Sauber had a close working relationship with Ferrari. After the Italian Grand Prix he borrowed Michael Schumacher from them for a low-key test at the Fiorano circuit. Sauber wanted an experienced driver to help with the imbalance problems, as Herbert's team-mates were all struggling with the Sauber C16. Schumacher completed 84 laps and was running around a second slower than his best time in a Ferrari. In this secret test, Schumacher ran in a Sauber without sponsors. Photos were released many years later.

About the artist photographer


Composed with hundreds of photos, his photographic assemblies about symbolic cars put forward the history and all the peculiarities which characterize these models. Amaury Soares does not present us a simple automobile photography but the idea that we are made of these cars, all that inspires us, as a picture that we would take in our spirit.

«The idea is to recreate a mental vision of a car. When we evoke a model of car, there is not a single image which comes to the spirit, there is a stream of images which comes into the head. I freeze this mental process in a single picture, as the result we have a photography which goes out directly of our imagination.»

The art photographies of Amaury Soares on the theme of the automobile were revealed for the first time in 2016 during the autoshow Retromobile in Paris.

His work is exhibited in different art galleries across Europe, but some of his pieces are also part to many European and international art collections (in France Belgium, Luxembourg, Holland Switzerland Portugal Brazil USA …). His last exhibition was in Singapore.
