After a difficult weekend for Marcus Ericsson, he believes the final race at the Yas Marina Circuit in Abu Dhabi was ‘decent’, even though the Sauber F1 Team driver struggled to keep up with the midfield runners, finishing ahead of team-mate Felipe Nasr in fourteenth.

Ericsson finished his first season with the Swiss team in eighteenth having scored nine points, just behind the two McLaren-Honda drivers Fernando Alonso and Jenson Button, but is confident of moving forward in 2016.

“It was a decent race after what was overall a difficult weekend,” said Ericsson. “We tried a different strategy, but we were struggling to keep up with the midfield to fight for points.

“In terms of performance, we got the maximum out of what we had today. Of course, the result is disappointing. My first season with the Sauber F1 Team is finished, it has been a pleasure. First of all, I want to thank everyone, both at the track and also back at the factory, for their hard work.

“I have got to know a lot of great people. I have learned a lot during the year, and I am very happy to be staying for next season. I am confident we can keep pushing and make some steps forward next year.”
