Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix – Qualifying – Saturday, 28.11.2015
Weather: dry, 28-25°C air, 34-28°C track




The Sauber F1 Team will start the final Grand Prix of the 2015 Formula One season, the night race in Abu Dhabi, from 14th (Felipe Nasr) and 18th (Marcus Ericsson). While Nasr was able to make it into Q2, Ericsson had to abort his flying lap on his second run in Q1 due to an unidentified problem. The reason for this is under investigation.


Felipe Nasr and Romero Britto charity auction - The eigth and last #AngelCup for the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, which is again designed and signed by the internationally renowned pop artist Romero Britto, will be used and signed by Felipe and auctioned at Charitybuzz (http://chrty.bz/ANGELCUP8).


 The proceeds will benefit our Charity Partner the Gabrielle’s Angels Foundation for Cancer Research (http://www.gabriellesangels.org/).



Marcus Ericsson (car number 9):
Sauber C34-Ferrari (Chassis 02/Ferrari)

Qualifying: 18th in Q1 (1:43.838 min / supersoft tyres)
3rd practice: 17th (1:44.325 min / supersoft tyres / 21 laps)



“It’s been a difficult weekend for me. We have been struggling to find a balance for the car that I feel comfortable with. For qualifying I felt we were going in the right direction. With the first set of supersoft tyres in Q1 I made a mistake on my second lap.


After that, on the next run I was not able to improve, as we seemed to have issues, so I had to abort the run at the end when the track was in its best condition. Overall, the result is for sure disappointing, but I think we made a step forward in terms of the car’s performance. This is positive for the race, and I will do my best to fight back.”


Felipe Nasr (car number 12):
Sauber C34-Ferrari (Chassis 03/Ferrari)

Qualifying: 14th in Q2 (1:43.614 min / supersoft tyres)
3rd practice: 13th (1:43.718 min / supersoft tyres / 24 laps)


“I think we made a good improvement compared to the practice sessions. Of course, this starting position is not ideal, but I am still satisfied with the changes we made to the car between yesterday and today. I was able to put a good lap together in Q1. In Q2 I then made a small mistake on my second lap into Turn 1, which cost me some time.


Overall, I felt a difference between the tyres in Q1 and Q2, so I want to understand why we lost a bit of performance in Q2. For tomorrow, the objective is to keep the eighth position in the constructors’ championship as well as holding onto 13th in the drivers’ championship for me. I will do everything I can to achieve that.”
