Marcus Ericsson insists that the dynamics within the Sauber F1 Team have not changed despite the high profile departure of Team Principal Monisha Kaltenborn ahead of the Azerbaijan Grand Prix.

Kaltenborn has yet to be replaced in the role, but Ericsson, who has yet to score a point in 2017, says the team continue to focus on improving the car and ensuring they become a competitive outfit on the Formula 1 grid, with team-mate Pascal Wehrlein having secured his second top ten result of the year last time out.

Ericsson admits that drivers do not generally work that closely with team principals in Formula 1, but he does hope that whoever does end up filling the role can put their own positive mark on the team.

“As a driver you don’t work too closely with the team principal directly so for me in the short term nothing has changed,” said Ericsson in Austria. “Hopefully soon we will have a new person in that position who can put their touch on the team and that would be great. But at the moment nothing has changed.

“Everyone in the team is working really hard and we are keeping together so nothing has changed there. We have a really good group of people both here at the racetrack but also back at the factory so nothing has changed.”
