Sauber targeting 'regular points finishes' with C30

“In order to take a step forward in 2011, we were already systematically tackling the C29's weaknesses over the last season – and we've made progress,” assured former Force India F1 man Key. “The insights we gleaned were taken into account when the concept for the new C30 was being drawn up.

“Since some of the changes decreed by the regulations – particularly regarding the tyres – can only be analysed out on-track, it was important for us to build, firstly, a fundamentally predictable car and, secondly, one that would provide sufficient flexibility to respond to ongoing findings at the track and during further development stages.”

I believe in James Key. He did an amazing job at Force India. Now at Sauber he has a way better infrastructure. This car could well be upper midfield. At the moment the car looks kind of simplistic.... "A good base to build on".... they better build on it quickly :D
