Monaco GP: Qualifying notes - Sauber

NEWS STORY
28/05/2016

The Sauber F1 Team finished qualifying ahead of the Monaco Grand Prix with Marcus Ericsson in P17. Felipe Nasr had an engine failure at the beginning of Q1and was, therefore, not able to participate (P22).

Marcus Ericsson: "It was a decent qualifying. On one hand I was very close to Q2, but on the other it is certainly frustrating to not get into Q2 when the gap is that tight. I am satisfied with my driving and it felt like a good lap that was close to the edge. In terms of the balance of the car, we made some adjustments from FP3 to qualifying, which felt good. For tomorrow, anything can happen here in Monaco during the race, so we need to take any chances we are offered."

Felipe Nasr: "It is a shame qualifying ended that early for me. When I left the pit lane for my out lap, I felt vibrations on the car. Then I lost power completely when I went on full throttle in the tunnel. I had a good feeling before going into qualifying, as we made the right changes on the car side. Now we need to focus on tomorrow. Thinking about the race, I am still positive as a lot can happen."
