Spanish GP: Qualifying notes - Sauber

NEWS STORY
14/05/2016

The Sauber F1 Team finished qualifying ahead of the Spanish Grand Prix in P19 (Ericsson) and P20 (Nasr). Despite the outcome, both the drivers are still positive about fighting back during the race.

Marcus Ericsson: "It's been a tough weekend for me. I have been struggling with the balance of the car since the first practice session. We have been working really hard to get a better balance for the car, and I felt we took steps in the right direction. Now in qualifying I felt more comfortable in the car, and I am satisfied with my driving. I think the result is the maximum considering our car's current package. Unfortunately, it is not better than 19th position. I hope we can be stronger in the future."

Felipe Nasr: "It was not an easy qualifying for us. We were expecting to face some difficulties here. But overall we did a good job with regard to the set-up of the car, especially when it comes to race preparation. In qualifying I managed to have a good lap on the first set of soft tyres. During the second run I struggled with some oversteer, so I could not improve my time. I think the results are the best we could have achieved today, as the other teams are further ahead of us. It is a long race tomorrow; a lot can happen, especially with regards to the tyre degradation."
