NEWS STORY
23/05/2017

The Monaco Grand Prix is different to every other race weekend on the calendar.

It is not only the most prestigious, but also a unique Formula 1 Grand Prix - for drivers as well as for fans. Racing in the narrow streets of Monte Carlo is a famous tradition and is where exciting Formula 1 races offer spectators a fascinating atmosphere in the principality. After finishing the Spanish Grand Prix in P8 and P11 - collecting the first points in the 2017 Formula 1 season - the Sauber F1 Team travels with stronger motivation and confidence to Monaco.

Marcus Ericsson and Pascal Wehrlein will have further updates on their Sauber C36-Ferrari, consisting of a new floor as well as adjusted rear brake ducts among other parts.

Marcus Ericsson: "The Monaco Grand Prix is one of the highlights of the season. It is kind of unique place, as it is so different to other circuits on our calendar. This street track is a lot of fun to drive, but at the same time very challenging. A small mistake can be punished by ending in the barriers. But if you are feeling confident in the car, you can extract the most out of your skills and the car's perfomance. After the surprising team result in Barcelona, we travel with a good feeling to Monte Carlo. We are making progress, and I am confident that we can further improve with the new parts that we are bringing to Monte Carlo."

Pascal Wehrlein: "Racing in Monaco is always special - it is fascinating and challenging at the same time, but also because of the tradition and the exciting Formula 1 races in the past. It is a real challenge for us drivers, as we need to drive very precisely. In order to be fast we are forced to drive the cars millimeters away from the barriers, but I like these kinds of challenges. Looking back on the Spanish Grand Prix weekend, we travel with good memories to Monte Carlo. We need to keep working in this development direction to further improve, but I am positive that we will make another step with the new parts on the car in Monaco."
