Sauber will fly a brand new chassis out to Malaysia for this weekend, after Nico Hulkenberg was forced to miss the Australian Grand Prix.

The team discovered a problem with his C32 relating to the fuel-cell, and on safety grounds, opted to retire his car from the race.

With the chassis having been returned to Switzerland for investigation, the German will get a brand new car.

"Huelkenberg's Sauber C32 was sent back to [Sauber HQ in] Hinwil and will be examined thoroughly.

"He will start with a new chassis in Malaysia," the team explained.
