Marcus Ericsson and Felipe Nasr are both looking forward to race in the new C34.
New Sauber recruits Marcus Ericsson and Felipe Nasr are both confident that the new C34 will allow them to challenge for points after the Swiss team struggled badly in 2014.
Ericsson is in his second season, while Nasr will make his debut in Australia after testing for Williams last year.
“After a difficult season, we want to move forward and fight in the midfield like the team previously did,” said Ericsson. “From a driver’s point of view, I want to continue to learn and establish myself as a Formula One driver. I have the feeling of being in the perfect environment to do so. In Formula One it is difficult to have precise targets, as it depends on the overall package. It is clear that we want to be fighting for points.”
“In my rookie season there is a lot to learn, and especially as I have not yet driven on some circuits yet,” said Nasr. “In general, I am ready to take on this challenge. In my role as test and reserve driver for Williams last year, I was involved in every race weekend. Furthermore, I also had the chance to drive the car a few times, so I think I have a certain understanding of Formula One.
“Now I am taking the next step in being a race driver, and I am looking forward to bringing my experience from 2014 as well as to supporting the Sauber F1 Team in getting back into the points.”
