Sauber preview the Hungarian GP

Date published: July 19 2016

After missing out on in-season testing last week, Sauber duo Marcus Ericsson and Felipe Nasr are eager to get going at the upcoming Hungary Grand Prix.

Marcus Ericsson: “Looking back to last year’s Hungarian Grand Prix, my memories are not too bad. I was able to score one point by finishing the race in the top ten. We had a decent pace in the race, and I hope we can achieve a similar result this season. It is good that we continue our tests with the new rear in order to proceed with our aero evaluation. It will be important to compare the data we collected from Silverstone to that we will gather in Budapest. Afterwards we will head directly to the German Grand Prix. At the Hockenheimring we will continue to work on the development of the car.”

Felipe Nasr: "The month of July is packed with race weekends – after the Austrian and British Grands Prix we head to the last two race weekends before the summer break: The Hungarian and German Grands Prix. Last year at the Hungaroring we were stronger than expected in the race – with P11 I was close to the points. Now I am looking forward to get a first taste of the Sauber C35-Ferrari with the new rear wing. At the German Grand Prix we will continue our work to get a better understanding of the car, and how we can build on it for the second half of the season.”
