Raffaele Marciello F1 debut at 2015 Malaysian GP
Following a successful season opener at Australian GP, the Sauber F1 Team and drivers is looking forward to the Malaysian Grand Prix.

Test and reserve driver Raffaele Marciello will drive in Friday Free Practice One and thus have his Formula 1 debut during a Grand Prix. The Italian will be driving the Sauber C34-Ferrari for the first time in FP1 on Friday. Regular driver Felipe Nasr will take over the car from FP2 onwards.

“It will be exciting to drive the Sauber C34-Ferrari for the first time. That will also be the same for the Italians, as we have not had an Italian driver in Formula 1 for quite a few years. I will definitely enjoy the experience, and I am really looking forward to it.” said Marciello in statement on Monday.

“I am confident I can do a good job as well as supporting the team in order to find a set-up for the car which suits the track. I have never been to Malaysia before, but I know the track quite well from the Ferrari simulator in Maranello, and I am sure I can get to learn it fast once I drive there.”

“As the circuit has some fast corners, I think the car’s downforce will be crucial. Another important aspect will be the weather, as the humidity, along with the temperatures, is quite high. From a driver’s perspective it will be a challenge, but this is the same for everyone. Together with my trainer, I am getting well prepared for this weekend.“ the Italian added
