With the Sauber C22 everything from the nose to the rear wing is new, and although the car's dimensions were only slightly changed, its proportions are totally different. Specifications for the new car were defined as early as in May 2002. At the same time, the first tests were run in the wind tunnel, laying down the general direction.

Development goals included improved rigidity of parts and a more compact and lighter build. Therefore even more ballast may be placed in the Sauber C22 in order to lower its centre of gravity, and there is more range to adjust the car to the various race tracks.

Due to the new points scale taking effect in the forthcoming season, reliability will also be crucial, since cars finishing seventh and eighth will be awarded championship points. A subsequent effort was thus put into transmitting the C21's reliability to the C22 despite the aggressive design.
