Marcus Ericsson will be fighting at this weekend’s Abu Dhabi Grand Prix to ensure his Sauber F1 Team hold onto tenth position in the Constructors’ Championship.

The Swede had a disappointing Brazilian Grand Prix, after crashing out on lap twelve. The weather conditions effected several drivers, with Ericsson losing control after aquaplaning. Despite his retirement, Sauber had a good Grand Prix, with team-mate Felipe Nasr finally securing the teams first points of the season, and this result moves the team ahead of Manor Racing MRT in the Constructors’ Championship.

For Ericsson the Grand Prix at the Yas Marina Circuit is always a nice race weekend, as he enjoys the circuit and the atmosphere from the fans.

“With the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix we approach the season finale,” said Ericsson. “It is hard to believe that we have now reached round 21 – time really flies.

“The Abu Dhabi Grand Prix is always a nice race weekend. Besides enjoying driving on this circuit a lot, the fan atmosphere and the events around the track are great. It will be an exciting weekend, as not only will the world champion be crowned, but we will also fight again for our tenth position in the constructors’ championship.”
