Brazil’s Felipe Nasr believes he can move up the field after a poor display in qualifying starting 21st just ahead of his team-mate Marcus Ericsson.

The Sauber F1 Team have struggled at the Hockenheimring with the lack of updates and development on the C35 on a track that needs a strong chassis.

Nasr said that he extracted the maximum out of the car but that only achieved a back row start, “It has been another difficult qualifying for us. I felt I was on a good lap, although we cannot see it in the result. At the moment, this is the maximum we can extract out of our current package in qualifying”.

He managed to save a set of tyres for the race which gives the Brazilian hope he can battle with the Manors and the Renaults who have been their nearest rivals throughout the season.

“We have saved a set of tyres, so hopefully we can make good use of them in the race. We normally have a decent race pace, so I am confident I can move up a few positions. As always, I will do my best.”

Sauber have failed to score a point this season but a new cash injection from a new owner will give the Swiss outfit hope in the future.
