Manor targeting Renault, but keeping an eye on Sauber

Date published: September 12 2016

Currently tenth on the Constructors’ Championship table, Manor racing director Dave Ryan has said that their target is to catch Renault, but not at the expense of being beaten by Sauber.

Manor have only managed one top ten finish this season, with a spectacular drive from Pascal Wehrlein in Austria, securing the team’s first and only point of the season.

Five-points behind Renault, Ryan is optimistic that they can pip them on the Championship table but is still wary of Sauber.

“We’re not looking too much at Sauber, we’re looking at Renault as well,” he told F1i.

“They’re struggling and our job is to beat anyone we can, that’s our goal.

“It happens to be that Sauber is the one that we’re consistently beating at the moment but Renault is not doing too good a job at the moment, they’ve obviously got issues that they’re dealing with.

“So we’re looking at them and anyone else that comes our way.”
