A satisfying result in qualifying for the Italian Grand Prix for the Sauber F1 Team starting from P11 (Nasr) and from P12 (Ericsson). Marcus Ericsson put in a strong performance by finishing in P10 – making it into Q3 in qualifying for the third time this season after the Malaysian and Chinese Grand Prix. However, Ericsson was given a penalty for impeding another driver in Q1. Felipe Nasr qualified 12th, but will move up one position.


What you also should know: As usual, Felipe Nasr will drink an espresso tomorrow before the race start – but from now on for a good cause. The #AngelCup, which is 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/AngelCup1) afterwards.


This will happen from now on at every race during the 2015 Formula One season. 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: 10th in Q3 (1:26.214 min / soft tyres)
3rd practice: 9th (1:25.692 min / soft tyres / 17 laps)



“Overall it has been a good day. We have shown a strong performance in qualifying and reached Q3. Everyone has done a good job. We have gone in the right direction in terms of the set-up of the car, with qualifying being the strongest session throughout the weekend.


I am pretty pleased with that, even though on my run in Q3 I made a mistake, so I could have done a better lap. In the end we made it into the top ten so have good chances to score points tomorrow.”



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


Qualifying: 12th in Q2 (1:24.898 min / soft tyres)
3rd practice: 11th (1:25.912 min / soft tyres / 17 laps
)


“First of all, the balance of the car felt good, and I was able to extract the most out of the it. I was quite confident about making it into Q3, but on my second run in Q2 I made a mistake which forced me to abort this lap. Nevertheless, it is a good starting position in order to score points.”



Monisha Kaltenborn, Team Principal:


“Well done by the team – finishing in the top ten in qualifying is a good performance. Therefore, we achieved what we expected so far. Although Marcus was given a penalty, these are promising positions to fight for points tomorrow. Now it is important that we maximise our opportunites.”
