Sauber preview the Malaysian GP

Nico Hulkenberg is awaiting his first Sauber start after missing the Aussie GP, while Esteban Gutierrez believes he can do better in Malaysia...

Nico Hulkenberg: "Compared to Melbourne, the track in Malaysia has different characteristics. It's a fast track with long high-speed corners, which should suit our car well. For the drivers Malaysia is always a challenge because of the high temperatures and the humidity. Lastly there is always a chance of rain, which can be interesting, especially at the start of the race."

Esteban Gutierrez: "With the experience of an entire race here in Melbourne, I can now look at where I can improve as a driver and where we can improve as a team. Sepang is a good track, which I know from GP2. Now I'm looking forward to driving the track in a Formula One car. "

Tom McCullough, Head of Track Engineering: "The Sepang circuit is a medium to high speed one, and we look forward to seeing how the C32 performs there. The circuit is technically challenging as there are also two long straights that require an efficient car and also several low speed corners. The circuit's characteristics and typically high temperatures are also a real challenge for the tyres, which is why Pirelli will bring the medium and hard compounds. The weather can also play a significant part during the race weekend as late afternoon rain showers are common. Our target for the race is to finish with both cars in the points."
