Felipe Nasr believes the Brazilian Grand Prix will be a very special race weekend for him, racing in front of his home fans.

The Sauber F1 Team driver had a disappointing Mexican Grand Prix, where he saw the chequered flag in sixteenth, although he later moved up one place after Carlos Sainz Jr had five seconds added to his race time. With the safety car being deployed at the beginning of the Grand Prix, Nasr felt this did not help his strategy.

Despite taking his C35 close to the points before his pit stop, he was unable to maintain this position once he returned to the circuit. For Nasr this is his home Grand Prix, so it’s always great to see the support from the Brazilian fans.

“I am really looking forward to my second home Grand Prix,” said Nasr. “Overall I had a nice experience last year.

“The Brazilian Grand Prix is certainly a very special race weekend for me. It is always great to see the Brazilian fans and have their support at the race track. I cannot wait to race at such an historical track that I really enjoy driving on.”

Nasr believes it would be great if he has the chance to score points on home soil.

“I expect a warm welcome and a lot of fans in Interlagos,” added Nasr. “I will be fighting to get a good result there.  It would be great if I could have the chance to score points at my home race. Hopefully my home soil can also bring us a bit of luck.”
