First, double Sauber Q3 since 2013 F1 season

First double Sauber Q3 since 2013
Sauber’s excellent start to the F1 season may have been aided by McLaren dropping off the map, but their young drivers are getting the best out of a vastly-improved car.

Both Felipe Nasr and Marcus Ericsson finished in the points in Australia, before the heat played havoc in Malaysia, but in cooler conditions the duo were at it again, qualifying ninth and 10th in Shanghai.

Felipe Nasr: “It is a great day for the team being able to have both cars in Q3. We seem to have the cars back on the pace we expected to have here. Therefore, I am confident for the race tomorrow. Hopefully we can get back into the points, and I will do my best to finish the race in the top ten.”

Marcus Ericsson: “It is a great achievement for the whole team to get both cars into Q3 – for the race team as well as everyone back at the factory in Hinwil. This weekend has been extremely tight as the lap times are quite close. Felipe and I put in good performances today and placed the cars in a promising position for tomorrow. It will be an exciting race, and I think, we have good chances for another positive day.”
