Putting aside last year's troubles, Monisha Kaltenborn says Sauber can be "very happy" about recording their second double-points haul in China.
It was great weekend for the Hinwil team as both Felipe Nasr and Marcus Ericsson qualified inside the top-ten at the Shanghai circuit.
They followed that form up with solid race-pace resulting in an eighth and tenth-placed finish on Sunday.
"We can be very happy with this result," said team boss Kaltenborn.
"We started the race in a promising position, however, it was a tough grand prix.
"The drivers had to deliver a lot and fought very hard, and this was also against competitors who were faster over this weekend.
"A big compliment to the drivers and to the whole team who did a great job.
"We started the race from points positions, and we were able to bring both cars home in the points. It's great that we achieved our goal."
