Kaltenborn: Sauber can bounce back

Kaltenborn: Sauber can bounce back

Monisha Kaltenborn is hoping Sauber can turn their fortunes around this season in much the same way they did last year.

In 2013, the team managed just seven points in the opening 11 grands prix before adding a further 50 in the remaining eight.

This year, though, Sauber's start to the campaign has been even worse.

Struggling to get performance out of an over-weight C33, the team has yet to score a single point, one of only two sitting on zero.

Team boss Kaltenborn is still confident that Sauber can bounce back.

"We had to set a different focus, which means compromises and not allocating so much resource to the new car," she told Autosport.

"We are still hopeful. There is potential in the car. Last year we could unlock it and we have to do the same here."

She added: "The fact we are behind Marussia at the moment is something we certainly don't like.

"I'm not going to dramatise it, because it comes from a race where anything can happen. We were looking sure for points, but let's leave that aside.

"We know we have to improve, but we still have enough races to show what we can do.

"I'm hopeful, like last year, that we will manage that."
