2 July 2016
Weather: FP3: sunny and dry, 24-26°C air, 42-49°C track, Qualifying: sunny/overcast/rainy and dry/wet, 28-26°C air, 54-35°C track

A disappointing qualifying for the Sauber F1 Team ahead of the Austrian Grand Prix in Spielberg: Marcus Ericsson and Felipe Nasr finished in P21 and P22. With track temperatures up to 54 degrees, it was difficult to get the tyres to work properly on the Sauber C35-Ferrari.

Marcus Ericsson (car number 9):
Sauber C35-Ferrari (Chassis 01/Ferrari)
Qualifying: 21st in Q1 (1:08.418 min / ultrasoft tyres)
3rd practice: 20th (1:09.137 min / ultrasoft tyres / 25 laps)
“It was a tough qualifying for us. It didn’t start too badly for me, as I had a good feeling on my first set of ultrasoft tyres and managed to set a decent lap time. My first lap on the second set of ultrasoft tyres was not ideal and on my second try the red flag came out. At the end of Q1 I got the chance to do another lap, but then yellow flags were waived, so I could not finish this run properly. Overall, a bit unfortunate. For tomorrow it will be difficult, but we need to stay focused and try to fight back.”

Felipe Nasr (car number 12):
Sauber C35-Ferrari (Chassis 03/Ferrari)
Qualifying: 22nd in Q1 (1:08.446 min / supersoft tyres)
3rd practice: 21st (1:09.557 min / ultrasoft tyres / 20 laps)
“It was a difficult qualifying. The ultrasoft tyres did not work out as expected. I was struggling with the grip during a whole lap. I went out on the supersoft tyres at the end of Q1, and I was quicker on the harder compound. We have to understand why that was the case. Tomorrow is another day. Starting from the back of the field we have to try something different. It will be a tough race, but the weather can also come into play if it rains.”
