18.10.2016: 2016 Formula One United States Grand Prix & Mexican Grand Prix

2016 Formula One United States Grand Prix & Mexican Grand Prix

18th and 19th Round of the FIA Formula One World Championship





After three Asian oversea races within the last month, Formula One now heads to America. The last of six back-to-back race weekends this season approaches with the United States Grand Prix followed by the Mexican Grand Prix.



Last year the Sauber F1 Team celebrated its 400th GP in Texas, at which Felipe Nasr scored two points by finishing in the top ten.



 The Mexican Grand Prix is directly afterwards on the calendar, which is a popular race weekend with teams and drivers after its successful revival in Mexico City in 2015.



Partner News: Gabrielle’s Angel Foundation for Cancer Research, Official Partner of the Sauber F1 Team, marks a memorable milestone:



For 20 years, Gabrielle’s Angel Foundation has funded cutting-edge cancer research, and, while extraordinary advances have been made, there are still patients for whom there is little hope. Support the #20for20 campaign and help to fund 20 cutting-edge research projects in celebration of its 20th year anniversary.


Starting with the United States Grand Prix and for the remainder of the 2016 Formula One season, the #20for20 logo will be visible on the Sauber C35-Ferrari inside the rear wing end plates, above the Gabrielle’s Angel Foundation for Cancer Research sticker. To support or learn more, please visit http://gabriellesangels.org/20for20/.




Marcus Ericsson (car number 9):


“I believe we all remember the rather unusual United States Grand Prix due to the heavy rain in 2015. I am looking forward to going back this year, as I like this track a lot. It is a nice event at the circuit, and, as well as that, Austin is a great place to be.




The Mexican Grand Prix follows the weekend after. I remember the atmosphere at the track and especially driving through the section from Turn 12 to Turn 16, which made us feel like we were in a football stadium.



The Mexicans gave us a warm welcome last season, and I am sure they will do so this year as well. Looking back to the previous race weekends, we clearly made steps in the right direction, but we still need to find more pace in order to fight for points.”




Felipe Nasr (car number 12):


“Last year’s United States Grand Prix was quite eventful, as the weather conditions led to an exciting race. Finishing in P9 was a nice achievement, bearing in mind that it was the 400th GP for Sauber.


Thinking about this year, I am very much looking forward to racing on this great track again. I will do the best I can for us to achieve a similar result to last year, as scoring points is obviously our objective.



At the Mexican Grand Prix it was great to see the grandstands full of people in 2015. The atmosphere at the circuit and in Mexico City was just excellent, so I am pleased to return this year.



I am confident that we are keeping working to improve the Sauber C35-Ferrari, in order to make further steps to be more competitive.”
 





Track facts Circuit of the Americas:



The Circuit of The Americas has more fast corners than Spa-Francorchamps and more slow corners than the Hungaroring, the combination of which makes the track a very complex engineering challenge.


The highest point on the lap is T1, which has a steep uphill approach and a blind entry. Sector one is characterised by five fast sweeping corners.



Sector two contains a 1km straight. Sector three has a mix of slow corners and a multi-apex right-hander through which the drivers are exposed to forces of 4g for a period of 5secs.

Track facts Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez:



For the revival of the Mexican Grand Prix in 2015, the “Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez“ had undergone several changes as well as some rebuilding since 1992.


With an altitude of about 2,300 metres above sea level, the Mexican Grand Prix can be considered as the Formula One race held at the highest altitude.



This altitude has an influence on the power output of the hybrid turbo engines due to the lack of oxygen. The most impressive section is between corners 12 and 16 – where the drivers feel like they are in a football stadium.

Race distance    71 laps / 305.584 km
