Marcus Ericsson was disappointed with qualifying at the German Grand Prix after finishing in 22nd and last place for the Sauber F1 Team, just behind his team-mate Felipe Nasr.

Sauber have seemingly been overtaken by the Manor and the qualifying seems to show that the Swiss team are dropping back from the F1 newcomers.

Ericsson failed to beat his Brazilian team-mate Nasr albeit starting 21st, Ericsson described the car’s balance as comfortable but the car’s performance in qualifying was not up to standard.

“In terms of the car’s balance, I felt comfortable. But in qualifying, especially, our performance is not good enough. It will be a tough race, but, as always, we will do what we can.”

Sauber have had very little development but an introduction of a new rear wing looked positive but didn’t have a substantial impact to allow the team to challenge for Q2.

“It is a disappointing result to start the race from the last row. It seemed to be a positive weekend, as we were going in the right direction and also found some positive results with the new rear wing”.

The Swedish driver could struggle in the race with the team somewhat of the pace of their nearest rivals Manor and Renault but anything can happen in Germany.
