Malaysia GP: Practice notes - Sauber

NEWS STORY
28/03/2014

It was a good Friday for the Sauber F1 Team at the Sepang International Circuit. Both free practice sessions went well for Esteban Gutierrez and Adrian Sutil, and they were able to complete their programmes without any issues. The measurements implemented to improve the car worked well. However, there is still some work to do for the team.

Esteban Gutierrez: "I think it was a positive day. We managed to have no problems during the entire day. From that point of view, it is positive. Besides that, we managed to do our planned programme with both cars, so we collected interesting information which we can use to make the right decisions for tomorrow. In comparison to Melbourne, we made a step forward as the braking stability is better. We still have further things to develop and to improve. We have to evaluate the high fuel and find the best compromise for the race."

Adrian Sutil: "In comparison to Melbourne, we made a few steps forward. The things we had on our plan partly worked out. However, the car is difficult to control and it is not easy to drive. We have a lot work ahead of us. We made steps in the right direction and it is working better than in Melbourne."

Giampaolo Dall'Ara, Head of Track Engineering: "Today went well. We were able to work through the planned programme without any issues. The measures we took to move forward appear to work well and brought the expected improvements. However, we are not where we want to be and we still have some work to do. A positive thing is that this track seems to suit our car better than Melbourne did, which is useful. For tomorrow I think Q2 is a sensible target, but here in Malaysia you never know as it might rain and things can get exciting."
