Sauber F1 Team Brazilian Grand-Prix race review

13.11.2016: Formula 1 Brazilian Grand Prix – Race – Sunday 13.11.2016 Weather: rainy and wet, 18-19°C air, 20-21°C track

Formula 1 Brazilian Grand Prix – Race
 – Sunday 13.11.2016
Weather: rainy and wet, 18-19°C air, 20-21°C track





An exciting Brazilian Grand Prix led to an exceptional race for the Sauber F1 Team: the wet race in Interlagos favoured Felipe Nasr – the Brazilian finished in P9 after starting from P21, while handling the difficult track conditions very well.



Several safety car phases and two red flags did not confuse the Brazilian on his way to score his first points on home soil.



Marcus Ericsson was quite unlucky, as he lost his Sauber C35-Ferrari and hit the barriers on lap 12.



After scoring its first points, the Sauber F1 Team is now tenth in the constructors’ championship (2 points).

Result: DNF. Start on wet tyres, after 9 laps change to intermediate tyres




“It was a very disappointing end to this wet race for me. The conditions on track were very difficult. I lost the car going up the hill on the way to the start-finish-line, because of standing water on the track – at the end I was just a passenger.



 I am very disappointed. However, Felipe did a great job today scoring two very important points for us. This is great for everyone in the team. I will fight back at the final race of the season at the Grand Prix in Abu Dhabi.”

Result: 9th. Start on wet tyres, after 20 and 28 laps change to wet tyres






“I have no words to say how happy I am at the moment. When I saw the weather forecast for today, I knew it could be an opportunity.



The opportunity came, and I was ready to go for it. We did an exceptional job today. The team was great informing me about the track conditions, while I was giving them my feedback. It was a tricky race, as the track conditions were very difficult at some points.


 In the end it was just an incredible feeling when I saw the fans in the grandstands cheering for me after the chequered flag.



There is no better feeling than scoring these two important points on home soil. I could not have hoped for a better Sunday back home in Brazil.”





Monisha Kaltenborn, Team Principal:



“First of all, I want to thank the whole team at the track, as well as at the headquarters in Hinwil. Despite the difficult circumstances, the team has always worked very hard and believed in its skills with a strong belief – therefore, these points are well deserved.



We knew that it would have been possible to score points in wet conditions, even from the back of the field – Felipe made it possible with an exceptional performance here in Interlagos.


Ninth position at his home race in front of his fans gives everyone in the team a lot of joy. Marcus was unlucky in these difficult track conditions and retired.



Now we will focus on the season finale in Abu Dhabi, where we will again fight for tenth position in the constructors’ championship.”
