Sauber is the first team to announce that its 2013 car is "ready" to test.

The Swiss team said the C32 "chassis and safety structures have passed" the mandatory FIA crash tests.

READY FOR TESTING

The Ferrari-powered car is therefore "fully homologated and ready for winter testing", which will kick off at Jerez, Spain, in early February 2013.

The German-language Speed Week reported that almost every other team should also be ready for the first four-day session in southern Spain, even though Red Bull's Christian Horner is quoted as saying: "It will be pretty darn close. You know Adrian Newey.

Speed Week also said a slight question mark hangs above Caterham's and Williams plans, who are aiming for a Jerez debut but actually might only begin running with the 2013 car in Barcelona two weeks later.
