No points for Sauber after solid performance on the Spanish GP

Monisha Kaltenborn: "Now we need to focus on the next race in Monaco, a track that should suit our car better."

By finishing 12th (Nasr) and 14th (Ericsson) at the Spanish Grand Prix, the Sauber F1 Team achieved the maximum considering what is currently possible. Both drivers put in a solid performance which did not reward the Swiss team with points.

Directly after the Spanish Grand Prix the Sauber F1 Team will work on the performance of the Sauber C34-Ferrari during the test days on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Marcus Ericsson: “Overall, 14th is not satisfying, but I think we have extracted the maximum out of the car this weekend. I had a reasonable start, but afterwards for a few laps got stuck a bit in traffic. It is a shame that we lost some time, especially during my first pit stop. We need to make sure to make the next races, and I am confident we will do so. Now we need to focus on the test days and try to make sure we improve the car for the next races.”

Felipe Nasr (car number 12): “It was a difficult race. We have been missing some lap time on medium as well as hard tyres compared to our main competitors. We still lack some downforce, which compromised our race. Our two stop strategy was overall a good choice. From my point of view, I took the maximum out of the car, so more than P12 was not possible.”

Monisha Kaltenborn, Team Principal: “We already had a difficult situation for the start with 15th and 16th. That’s why there was no more we could achieve today. Our drivers put in a solid performance. Now we need to focus on the next race in Monaco, a track that should suit our car better.”

Giampaolo Dall’Ara, Head of Track Engineering: “After a difficult qualifying we expected not to have an easy race. The change from a three to a two stop strategy didn’t help us much. During testing on Tuesday and Wednesday we will continue to improve the performance of the Sauber C34-Ferrari.”
