Sauber must keep sixth place – James Key

Published

on

Aug.09 – The Sauber F1 team’s technical director James Key says, Sauber must to react to the Force India form in order to keep sixth place in the standings. The Silverstone based F1 squad Force India has enjoyed a series of very strong races over the last few weeks, and controlling to close the gap to Sauber to just nine points.

“I think Force India have definitely made a step, they look quite strong and they have got some potentially strong events coming up, Spa and Monza, so we need to react a bit to what they’ve done and we are,” James Key told Autosport.

“We’ve got packages and stuff on the way. We have to see. I think from our side our consistency isn’t brilliant, we go to certain tracks and conditions where we know we are going to have trouble, and other circumstances where it is good and we probably have to keep more consistency to try and fight with Renault and Force India. I think with the tracks, as I predicted at the Nurburgring, places like Hungary and Silverstone, where you laterally load the tyre, are far better for us than places that are stop start like Canada for example. Tracks which work the tyres are good for us.

“And with the tyre compounds, we don’t get on at all well with the medium tyre, but the soft and the super soft no problem at all and then the hard surprisingly is okay as well.

“But when we have to face the medium its just very difficult. It’s very peaky, you can easily go over the top of its working range or underneath, but to be on it seems to be very condition-dependent.”
