Sauber C31 is the team’s best car, since we are in F1



(Originally this text translated from German) Overview: After the start, once again giving away seats on Saturday – on Sunday the miracle of Montreal?
Peter Sauber: A miracle, I would not call it. Behind the 17 championship points is hard work. But it’s true, we must improve in qualifying.

The Mexican people are freaking out at the race. Hundreds chanted in the stands, even the national anthem. In the paddock gabs a tequila party.

Yes, the enthusiasm is huge in Mexico – and we help to a very large extent. It must not be forgotten – and that makes me proud.

What pleased you most?
For me, this result is more valuable than the second place of Perez in Malaysia. The Canadian Grand Prix was a totally regular races. There was no rain, no pace car period, and there was even a loss of Schumi. So you have of 15 Start first of all take place on the podium.

How is this possible?
I repeat: Hinwil had built with the C31 the best car, since we have entered 1993 in Formula 1. 75 percent of success lies solely in terms of aerodynamics. Envies us, most of the opponents.

Nevertheless, Sauber in Bahrain and Monaco went from moderately empty points.
This is annoying because the C31 is the ideal for all types of track and fast car. We need to have before any runway more fear! We are all competitive.

If the numbers zero so only the drivers?
A difficult question. Kobayashi is a great guy. He’s in Montreal, despite the 9 Square has not dropped. But he put the whole race in traffic. I think he has become almost insane. First, behind Raikkonen, Button, and then behind Di Resta. I love his attitude – and he will make us much joy.

Perez leads unfortunately often to such a superstar, even though he constantly re-installs a blunder.
Well, Sergio is fast and easy on the tires. In the second year you can still make mistakes, even if we do not like the course.

It was already after the race again Mexican voices that see their new national hero in a top team soon. After Malaysia, he was immediately been transferred to Ferrari….
Basically it is a compliment to me, if the competition a driver really wants. Then we are making things right. But I think Perez now knows exactly what he did to our car.

So let’s take Pérez under any circumstances?
This year, certainly not. And otherwise it is not so easy to leave our team. I think that Perez can explode for us a few more times at the right moment.

They are now with 58 points as the best private team at the targeted sixth World Cup place. Only eleven points behind the German giant Mercedes plant …
It feels good when you have the silver arrows in striking distance. For this I must say that the misfortune of Schumacher’s incredible. This is what I’ve seen in F1 before. He is doing really sorry.

And for once, was Lotus driver Romain Grosjean your drivers out of the way around – yes, he was second!
Compliment, the Frenchman has gone very well. We were very close to the target on him. But Perez was probably glad he Vettel, who had fresh tires so could leave behind.

Is the 20th Your GP season last?
The fact remains: At 70 I am no longer on the pit wall. And 70 I’m only in October 2013…
