Sauber preview the Canadian GP

Date published: June 1 2015

Marcus Ericsson is expecting Sauber to "be stronger" in Canada while Felipe Nasr says braking stability and traction will be key.

Marcus Ericsson: "I am looking forward to the Canadian Grand Prix. I like the track, it is a combination of a street and permanent circuit. It is a traditional race with a lot of history and I will enjoy to race there. Montreal is one of the tracks that should suit our car better mainly because of the long straights. As we do have a high top speed, it could be positive for us. Besides the engine power, braking stability as well as a good change of direction will be important. The many long straights also make overtaking easier on this track. Due to the track characteristics, I think our performance should be stronger in Montreal."

Felipe Nasr: "It will be my first time driving on this track in Montreal. It is a challenging circuit because there are some tricky chicanes, but I think I am going to enjoy driving there. In order to prepare well, I will watch on-board videos. I am confident the many long straights could be a benefit for us as we do have a competitive straightline speed. The track also requires good braking stability and traction."
