Sauber team principal Monisha Kalterborn has confirmed the team will use a 2016-spec Ferrari power unit next season.Kalterborn said the decision had been taken earlier this year in order to allow Sauber to focus on its chassis design and development, ahead of the new technical regulations which will be introduced for 2017.Had Sauber opted to overhaul its power unit, the Swiss team would have risked being forced to make late changes to its car design. As a result, it has elected to remain with a known engine concept in the shape of a 2016 Ferrari power unit.We will be using the latest spec of the 2016 Ferrari engine in 2017, Kaltenborn told F1i.The reasoning is actually that we took this decision a while ago -- not just recently -- at a time when actually the rules for next year were also not 100% clear. At that point of time we took a strategic decision to say that we want to focus the resources we have on chassis development, on performance development and in a way leave the engine side to the information and the areas which we know.So it was a pure strategic decision taken even before the rules for next year were actually finalised.Kalterborn refuted claims that Saubers decision was based on delays to its 2017 developments and insists the team -- which was taken over by Longbow Finance in July -- is well on course with its plans for next year.Any statements being made that this was taken because we are apparently in delay with our developments are wrong. We are absolutely on plan, we have not suffered any delay there. Through the change in the ownership now of course we have the stability and the boost you need to step up the speed were developing at.She added: Obviously theres not going to be that development on the engine side but in our view its the right step weve taken that whatever we might suffer on one side we are confident with the additions we have to the team to be focusing on compensating for that on the chassis side.Kaltenborn said the judgement was not influenced by Saubers financial situation, and used Toro Rosso, who are running a year-old Ferrari power unit in 2016, as an example of how it is possible to compensate for a lack of power unit development over the course of a season.Its a wilful step we have taken here. It did not have anything to do with any financial constraints, it was really that we want to focus on the chassis development. Our engineers are convinced that if there is any disadvantage you might have in terms of the power unit they want to compensate it through the chassis development.Well we definitely looked at [Toro Rosso] but for us the decision was really taken a while ago because things were not 100% sure on the rules. We wanted to have the ability that if there is any change again we can react to that and the power unit side is then the known side for us. San Francisco 49ers Jerseys China .

Linda Zondi, CSAs convener of selectors, has suggested that South Africa should consider introducing pink-ball cricket at first-class level. This, he said, would help prepare players for the inevitable move towards more day-night Test cricket.From a selection point of view, it only makes common sense as we move on that guys need to familiarise themselves with the process, Zondi said. You cannot be in a position where at the international level, you play with a particular ball but then at franchise level, where you are selecting from, the guys are not.While Australia, India, England, Pakistan, Bangladesh and West Indies have all introduced some pink-ball matches into their domestic competitions, South Africas only first-class experience with it was four years ago in a match between franchise team Knights and provincial side North-West. The only member of the current South Africa squad who played in that match was Rilee Rossouw. Rossouw made 21 and 2 in the drawn game, during which issues were raised about the quality of the ball.The pink ball was used again during the group stages of the inaugural Africa T20 Cup in 2015 - a season-opening tournament played between the provincial semi-professional sides alongside a team each from Zimbabwe, Kenya and Namibia. After feedback from players, match officials and the host broadcaster, it was decided that white balls would be used for the knockout round. This years Africa T20 did not feature pink balls at all.South Africa have also not been tempted to experiment with it in a franchise match. It was only when they agreed to play a day-night Test on this Australia tour that their international players were exposed to the pink ball. South Africa A toured Australia in winter and sent opening batsmen Stephen Cook and Dean Elgar, middle-order man Temba Bavuma and opening bowler Vernon Philander to gain experience with the pink ball. Initially, Philander expressed concerns about the softness of the baall.ddddddddddddHe has since returned with the Test squad, who played in a pink-ball warm-up match in Adelaide before the series. There, Quinton de Kock downplayed the hype over the pink ball, saying he found it no different from any other colour ball because it was tricky to face upfront and then became easier.Kyle Abbott had similar views after the Hobart Test. It is not that much different to a red ball, or a white ball really for us. It is either going to swing or seam, he said. It all depends on the surface. It might nip. Under lights it did seem to nip a bit, but well just have to see when we get there because I think the conditions will be a little bit different.The Adelaide pitch is expected to have a fair amount of grass - a means of delaying the aging of the ball - which hints at an advantage for bowlers. South Africa, though, cant be too sure because their experience with the pink ball is limited to the matches they have played in Australia. Only Rossouw knows otherwise, although Zondi is hopeful that will change in future.The key is that within the franchise, within our structure, sooner or later it will be an idea to also make sure all those guys where we pick from are using the pink ball, Zondi said. Im not quite sure when it will happen because thats a different pipeline in terms of the guys who are dealing with it but we hope it will happen.While all major franchise grounds have the facilities for day-night first-class cricket, a potentially prohibitive cost will be that of turning the lights on. Electricity prices in South Africa have risen 10% in 2016 alone and most stadiums spend hundreds of thousands of Rands to use floodlights. The franchises and provinces are heavily funded by CSA so if domestic pink-ball cricket is to become a reality, the finances will need to be carefully assessed.
