Sauber F1’s Kamui Kobayashi believes that Sauber can grab podium finish in upcoming race at Monaco, and he claims Sauber C31 have better improvement in slow corner. The Japanese speedy showed a better performance in Spanish GP in last weekend, Kamui finished fifth place from the ninth on the grid.
“I think our car will be better in Monaco than it was last year because it has improved in slow corners,” said Kobayashi. “In 2011 I finished fifth, so the target should be to finish higher up this year.
“However, even if you are given the best car in Monaco, in the end a lot is down to the driver to get the ultimate tenths of a second out of it.”
“We have seen five different winners in five races. So you could say almost everything is possible this year,” he explained. “I believe we have a good car and good chances for good results.
“The final outcome always depends on a lot of factors. But what you have to do for success is to get every small thing perfectly right over the entire weekend. And this is what I’m aiming at.”
Kobayashi said about the C31 new improvements – “I think we have improved in the areas we wanted to. The car is better balanced through the corners now. In terms of stability I would say it is about the same, but stability always depends a lot on the track conditions.”
