I haven't seen anything to suggest they will. But what Brawn showed is that an unsponsored car at the start of the season doesn't necessarily mean a struggling, dying team. And I think Sauber could underline that point. Although they won't have come up with a Brawn-esque once-in-a-decade stroke of genius, like Brawn they still have the infrastructure of a manufacturer team behind them: BMW's data and computer systems, the Hinwil windtunnel, most of the people, etc. are all still there. Money may become a problem as the season progresses (or it may not) but what they have to work with right now is probably little different to what they'd have had if BMW had stayed. I expect them to be, well, Sauber: nothing spectacular, but nothing disastrous either.
