United States GP: Qualifying notes - Sauber

NEWS STORY
22/10/2016

The Sauber F1 Team finished qualifying ahead of the United States Grand Prix in Austin, Texas with one car in Q2: Marcus Ericsson ended up in P14 in Q1 and will start the race from P16. Felipe Nasr qualified in 21st.

Marcus Ericsson: "It has been a tricky Friday, as I was not feeling confident in the car. We had quite a lot of work to do overnight to find a better direction for today. We definetly made steps in the right direction for FP3. For qualifying I felt even better in the car. That was a good job by everyone. Talking about qualifying, I am satisfied with my performance. My lap in Q1, that at that time was P14, was really good. In Q2 we did not have a fresh set of supersoft tyres to put on. Anyway, P16 is a decent position to start the race from, and I hope we can again take up the fight with the mid-field in the race tomorrow."

Felipe Nasr: "It is certainly not the qualifying result we can be satisfied with, especially when keeping in mind yesterday's results. I was pretty satisfied with the balance of the car in both free practice sessions, but in qualifying there was something wrong with the car. We have to investigate and see what we can improve on for tomorrow."
