Marcus Ericsson admits that he and Sauber F1 Team are “still struggling” with their car, but were able to beat one of their main competitors in Sunday’s Spanish Grand Prix.

“I am happy with my race today,” admitted the Swedish driver. “We went for a good strategy from my point of view. I am also satisfied with my driving, as I did not make mistakes and had a good pace at the same time. I would say it was one of my best races in Formula One so far.”

Ericsson admits that although the team have improving slightly throughout the past few races, they are still struggling to keep up with the teams and drivers ahead of them.

“We all know that we are still struggling with our car to keep up with other teams,” continued Ericsson. “Today I was able to beat one of our main competitors. Without updates on the car, I think we can be satisfied with this result today. We will keep pushing for Monaco.”

The Swede ended his race in 12th position, just behind Esteban Gutierrez, whilst his Brazilian teammate Felipe Nasr finished two places behind in 14th.

“That is a result which we can build on,” said Team Principal, Monisha Kaltenborn. “Marcus was able to make his way up to the midfield due to very good driving. It is a positive sign that the team needs.”
