Sauber ready to fight for fifth constructors’ championship



Sauber targeting fifth in constructors’ championship, chief executive officer Monisha Kaltenborn recently says that team set fight for top five finishes for 2012 constructors’ championship.

Now Sauber standing in six in the constructors’ championship behind the Mercedes GP, last race at Germany the Swiss F1 squad achieved 20 points, the duo Kamui Kobayashi and Sergio Perez done fourth and sixth place respectively.

“Our target is to improve significantly,” Kaltenborn told Autosport.

“If it’s just one position at the end of the season compared to last year, I would not call that significant. We can really go further up.

“But it’s very early to make a call right now. We have half-a-season to go and we saw last season how much things chance. It looked like a safe sixth position but it didn’t end up like that.”

“It’s a bit responsibility for them because no matter what car we provide, they have to bring the result home,” she said.

“They are inexperienced drivers in a way because to be in your second or third season in F1 is nothing compared to others in their 10th season. We have to be careful not to put too much load on them because they have to have their time to learn as well. But they are both doing a good job.”

“This kind of result shows what we are capable of,” said Kaltenborn.

“But we could do far more if we were starting further up and not messing up qualifying. This is the level that we have to target, and even higher because we know that the car can do more.

“Qualifying is still one of our weaknesses which we really should focus on. Other mistakes can happen, but if you are better in qualifying, you are in a very different position going into the race. It has to be our target in the second half of the year to improve in this area.”
