“First, I’m happy to get back on track in the Sauber lineup after a back injury, said Wehrlein. It was great to sit in the cockpit of the new machine and get the first impressions of piloting.
This morning I tried to adapt to the new car C36. Looking forward to returning to work tomorrow.”
Marcus Ericsson, who finished the day 12th in the standings, added: “I got behind the wheel of the car after lunch: on the car were installed new aerodynamic parts. This has seriously changed the behavior of the machine compared to last week.
In addition, we worked on the settings in the eve of the debut Grand Prix season in Melbourne. Overall it was an interesting day, but not the smoothest.
Now we need to analyze the information to make the machine more comfortable to control tomorrow.”
