Kobayashi: Spa should suit Sauber

Kobayashi: Spa should suit Sauber

Kamui Kobayashi is confident that no matter what the weather, Sauber can do well at the Belgian GP.

Having been largely overshadowed by his team-mate Sergio Perez, who has two podium finishes to Kobayashi's zero, the Japanese driver is in need of a good result to secure his future with Sauber.

The 25-year-old, though, has not had great success at Spa in the past having finished down in 12th place last season while just eighth the previous year.

However, Kobayashi is confident that this season's C31 has the ability to shine at the Belgian circuit no matter the weather.

"Spa-Francorchamps is one of my favourite circuits," he said.

"I like its high speed corners, and I also like how this track is integrated into the landscape with a lot of greenery. This gives it a very special atmosphere.

"However, the weather is very unpredictable and can influence qualifying or the race significantly. Due to the length of this track, it can sometimes be that one part of it is completely dry while, at the same time, another part can be completely wet.

"But I'm confident we can be very competitive under all kinds of conditions in Spa because the characteristics of this track with its fast corners should suit our car. I'm really looking forward to this race."
