Felipe Nasr: “It was a productive roll-out day”

Felipe Nasr was able to have a productive day on the first day of running in the new Sauber C35, a day after it was launched to the world.

The team delayed the introduction of its 2016 car until this week’s second pre-season test at the Circuit de Catalunya after deciding not to rush through its development after the first race and the first pre-season test were brought forward.

Nasr was able to breakthrough the 100-lap barrier on the cars debut, finishing ninth fastest, and felt it was a positive day for everyone involved in the Swiss team.

“It was a productive roll-out day with the new Sauber C35-Ferrari – with more than 100 laps on the Barcelona Circuit,” said Nasr.

“As usual on the first day of testing with the new car, we focussed on several installation and system checks, on set-up changes and, of course, on data collection.

“It was an extensive programme, on medium and soft tyres, from which we obtained interesting data to look into. For the following test days there is still a lot of work to do.”
