Felipe Nasr is hoping that unpredictable weather at the Brazilian Grand Prix will yield a first championship point or two for Sauber.
Nasr heads home to Brazil next weekend for the penultimate round of what has been a trying season for Sauber.
The team is the only outfit yet to get off the mark as financial difficulties wrecked havoc in the first half of the campaign.
Despite the team securing new owners, neither Nasr nor Marcus Ericsson have managed to get off the mark.
That, though, is something the Brazilian driver is hoping to change next weekend.
“In terms of getting a point, in Sao Paulo as we know there is always a question mark on the weather, it can be anything – sunny or rainy on the same day,” Nasr told Reuters.
“And this could play into our hands, in terms of having tricky conditions out there or if the track is wet or dry enough.
“I would expect something like this that would help us score points because in normal conditions, on pure performance, we don’t have the car to achieve a top 10 finish.
“We need this combination and lets count on home soil too to bring us luck. It’s better to be positive than not.”
Nasr is also looking to secure his future with the 24-year-old linked to both Sauber and Force India.
“There is nothing 100 percent yet but I am pretty confident we are going to be there (in Formula One) next year,” said Nasr.
“Everybody wants to know where (I’ll be). Even me, I don’t know where yet. But hopefully soon we are going to know.”
