Pilot Sauber Marcus Ericsson was unhappy with the finish line in 15th place at Sochi Autodrom.
“Not to say that the race has brought us a lot of fun,’ said Marcus. Especially had a hard time during the first section after leaving the highway safety car. I had problems with the balance of the car and the tires warmed up. Because of this, I couldn’t maintain the pace car in front.
On the second leg of the race, the situation has stabilized, and I was able to partially make up for lost time.
Overall on Sunday, the car balance was better than on the preceding days of the weekend. You need to analyze what we can improve in the car, to become stronger in the upcoming races”.
His teammate Pascal Wehrlein. Finished the race 16-m, said, “Starting with Friday’s training, we knew that this track doesn’t suit us. Throughout the race I couldn’t get to work on the tyres in the right temperature. This affected my speed on the circle.
Overall I felt discomfort, piloting a car in Sochi. You want to view telemetry and analyze why. I hope that in Barcelona we will be able to squeeze out of the car more pace.”
