Sauber's dismal run continues

Sauber's dismal run continues

Sauber hit a new low in Germany when the team recorded their longest run ever outside the points.

For the 10th grand prix in succession, Sauber failed to get a single car into the top ten.

While Adrian Sutil retired on lap 49 when he spun and stalled his C33, Esteban Gutierrez finished in 14th place, a lap down on the race winner.

It was another wretched Sunday for the Hinwil-based team although Monisha Kaltenborn is adamant there were "positive" signs.

"The race showed that our competitiveness has slightly improved, although we know that our level is certainly not satisfying yet," said the team boss.

"We had the chance to gain one point and it is a pity that we could not take advantage of this due to two unfortunate incidents.

"At first we suffered from a wrong driver procedure, following that the driver spun in the final corner and we still have to investigate the reasons for that.

"However, there were positive aspects and we need to deploy the insights we have gained and take every opportunity that comes up."
