Hinwil – The Sauber C35-Ferrari had an encouraging debut in Barcelona at the beginning of March. After the test days, the engineers worked through the data from the Sauber C35-Ferrari which had been collected during 1890 kms of testing. Now the Swiss team is looking forward to the traditional season opener in Melbourne. During the Australian Grand Prix Pirelli will introduce its new tyre regulations. This will be interesting for defining different strategies throughout the weekend.

Marcus Ericsson (car number 9): “I cannot wait to finally kick off the 2016 Formula 1 season in Melbourne. The Australian Grand Prix in Albert Park is always special as the atmosphere is great – I enjoy being in Australia. I also have great memories from last year as I scored my first points in Formula One there. Looking back to the last few weeks, the preparations during the test days in Barcelona went well, and I felt comfortable with the C35. Now we have to see how things work out during a race weekend. I am confident the team has worked hard to be in a good shape for the season opener in Melbourne."

Felipe Nasr (car number 12): “The Australian Grand Prix reminds me of my fantastic result from last year. Finishing fifth in my first ever Formula One race is something I will probably never forget. It is nice to come back to Albert Park with these great memories. During testing in Barcelona I had some productive days collecting good mileage in the C35. I feel well prepared to start my second Formula One season. I am curious to see where we stand with the C35 in comparison to the other teams. Everyone within the factory in Hinwil has worked really hard, so we deserve a successful start to the 2016 Formula One season."
