The Brazilian Grand Prix is another home race for the Sauber F1 Team. With the Brazilian Felipe Nasr and Banco do Brasil, Principal Partner of the Sauber F1 Team, the race weekend in Interlagos will be exciting for the team off as well as on the track. The objective for the penultimate race of the 2016 Formula One season is clear: finishing in the points.

As Felipe Nasr tested the halo system for the first time during FP1 at the Mexican Grand Prix, it will be Marcus Ericsson's turn to get a first taste of the cockpit head protection system during FP1 in Interlagos.

Marcus Ericsson: "The Brazilian Grand Prix is a nice race weekend with lots of Formula One history. It will be an important race weekend for us. Of course, our objective is still to score points, so as a team we will do our very best to ensure Felipe and I finish the race in the top ten. We will keep working in the right direction, and we all know that we are hunting for the first point. Regarding the race weekend, I will have the chance to test the halo system for the first time on Friday in FP1. I am curious to see how driving feels with it."

Felipe Nasr: "I am really looking forward to my second home Grand Prix. Overall I had a nice experience last year. The Brazilian Grand Prix is certainly a very special race weekend for me. It is always great to see the Brazilian fans and have their support at the race track. I cannot wait to race at such an historical track that I really enjoy driving on. I expect a warm welcome and a lot of fans in Interlagos. I will be fighting to get a good result there, and it would be great if I could have the chance to score points at my home race. Hopefully my home soil can also bring us a bit of luck."
