Team Quotes

Kamui Kobayashi, car #10, chassis CT05-#03: “Finishing 18th isn’t the final position we’d want, but after a really good battle with Jules I’m relatively pleased with how today’s race went. However, it’s a real shame that my move on him on the last lap now doesn’t count due to the mistake with the chequered flag, something we had nothing to do with. We’d had a really good battle for the last few laps of the race and I got him on what was the last lap, until it turned out the chequered flag had been waved a lap too early by mistake – until we found that out after the race it had been good to see what a small victory like that does for the team as it lifted everyone at the end of a very tough first four races of 2014.

“I didn’t have a great start but still made up a couple of places on lap one and was having a good fight with Maldonado until lap 18 when he got past. The guys did a very good pitstop when we came in for the first time for new mediums on lap 11, helping me stay ahead of him until halfway through the second stint, but our car is simply not competitive enough on options tyres to hold him and once he was ahead I didn’t have the pace to fight back, so from that point we were focused on beating the Marussias.

“We stuck to the original three stop strategy and that gave us a few interesting moments, particularly with Vettel who I was told I could pass as he was fuel saving and on old tyres and I was on new softs on the third stint. I hear he wasn’t too pleased about that but relative to him I had the pace then to immediately pull away and did so to avoid compromising our plan.

“Obviously though the real battle for us was with the Marussias and when I came out on new softs after my final pitstop I was able to catch Chilton quickly and then closed the gap to Bianchi in a few laps, despite the traffic at that point in the race which always makes our own race very difficult. It was a really good battle with Jules, clean racing and I finally passed him going into the hairpin at the end of the back straight, having feinted left in turn 11 so I had a better run on him onto the straight which set him up for the pass into turn 14. As I say, through no fault of our own that result now doesn’t count but we’ll just have to dig deeper in Spain and fight back there.

“Even though we had good race with Maldonado for the first third of the race it’s clear we don’t have the outright pace to fight Lotus or Sauber yet, but we have a good package coming for Spain and we are determined to try and close the gap. The first four races have been hard, but having both cars finish today shows the progress we and Renault have made with reliability. Now we have to build on that and use the next couple of weeks to recharge ourselves so we can come back stronger in Barcelona.”

Marcus Ericsson, car #9, chassis CT05-#01: “For me the whole race was dominated by understeer. On every set of tyres the balance just wasn’t there and that meant I couldn’t really push at all. It’s good that we got to the end of the race, but if I hadn’t had that understeer I’m sure I’d have been quicker.

“My start wasn’t perfect and I was behind both Marussias at the end of lap one. We did the first stint on softs and they started graining pretty quickly so we boxed for mediums for the second stint on lap 10. We added a bit more front wing to try and help with the understeer but it didn’t really help so I just couldn’t push any more than I was. It was the same for the third and fourth stints which we did on softs but by that point I was pretty much on my own so just focused on getting to the end of the race.

“This is obviously the last of the early season flyaways and when we start the European season in Spain it’ll be back at a track I know really well. As a rookie that’s obviously good for me and with the amount of time I’ll be in the factory and in the simulator between now and then, and with the new parts we have coming in Barcelona, I’m sure we’ll come back stronger there and ready to make progress there and in the next few races.”

Cedrik Staudohar, Renault Sport F1 track support leader: “Today we had no issues on the Power Unit side and worked with the team to get the maximum performance possible. The final result is not exactly what we wanted to achieve but we’ll take advantage of the three weeks between Shanghai and Barcelona to work on performance and help the team deliver in the European season.”

Sauber F1 Team - 2014 FORMULA 1 UBS Chinese Grand Prix Race @ Shanghai International Circuit Sunday 20 April review

The Chinese Grand Prix in Shangahi ended for the Sauber F1 Team with a big disappointment : Adrian Sutil was forced to retire on lap six due to an engine problem. Esteban Gutiérrez had a decent pace in the early stages of the race, but then the rear tyres lost most of their grip which forced him to change from the planned two stop strategy to three stops. He finished the fourth round of the 2014 World Championship in 16th.

Weather: dry and overcast, 16-17°C air, 22-25°C track

Esteban Gutiérrez (car number 21):
Sauber C33-Ferrari (Chassis 04/Ferrari)
Start on soft tyres tyres, after 14 laps change to medium tyres, after 27 laps change to medium tyres and after 40 laps change to soft tyres

“It was a very complicated race in terms of tyre management. With these kind of temperatures the prime tyres were not really working for us. We had to do a three stop strategy, which ended up as a disadvantage for us. With our current pace we could not have higher expectations in terms of our results. I have total faith in my team, everybody is putting their best efforts into everything. I believe that Barcelona is the place where we can recover, make a step forward and fight for better positions and points.”

Adrian Sutil (car number 99):Sauber C33-Ferrari (Chassis 03/Ferrari)
Start on soft tyres – DNF on lap 6

“Unfortunately it was a very short race for me. During the formation lap I already had problems. As it was a quite slow formation lap, I was not able to identify what the problem was. I just realised the engine was not working properly. At the start I had almost no power. Going into the first corner I noticed there was a problem with the engine. I lost a lot of positions during the first lap and fell back to last. I did a few more laps, but then went  back to the pits. The team tried to solve the issue, but we could not do it quickly. I had to retire. However, I am still positive and looking forward.”

Monisha Kaltenborn, Team Principal:
“Of course it’s a shame that Adrian suffered an engine problem after only a few laps and was never really able to get into the race. In Esteban’s case, we have to analyse everything in order to understand why the rear tyres suddenly lost so much grip. We are obviously not happy with this kind of performance. We are going through a tough time, but this is no reason for us to bury our heads in the sand. We need to continue working in a very focused way and make sure we get the maximum from our development package for the next race in Barcelona.“

Giampaolo Dall’Ara, Head of Track Engineering:
“This was obiously not the the result we wanted. For Adrian, the race was over before it had really started. His car suffered a major engine problem, which Ferrari will have to investigate. For Esteban, the beginning of the race was quite okay. He started on the soft tyres, and, as expected, they grained. Then on the medium tyre things went quite well in the beginning, but from lap 25 on the rear tyres lost grip massively, which forced us to change from the planned two stop strategy to three stops. We have to analyse what exactly was the problem. The only chance we had was to get the maximum from the new tyres, but the performance was simply not good enough today.“

UBS Grosser Preis von China - Rennen - Sonntag

Der grosse Preis von China in Shanghai endete für das Sauber F1 Team mit einer herben Enttäuschung: Adrian Sutil schied bereits in der sechsten Runde mit einem Motorproblem aus. Esteban Gutiérrez konnte zu Beginn des Rennens recht gut mithalten, beklagte dann aber stark nachlassenden Grip der Hinterreifen, was ihn zwang, von einer Zweistopp- auf eine Dreistopp-Strategie umzustellen. Er beendete den vierten Lauf der Formel 1 Weltmeisterschaft 2014 auf Rang 16.

Wetter: trocken und bedeckt, 16-17°C Luft, 22-25°C Asphalt

Esteban Gutiérrez (Startnummer 21):
Sauber C33-Ferrari (Chassis 04/Ferrari)
Gestartet auf weichen Reifen, nach 14 Runden auf mittlere Reifen, nach 27 Runden auf mittlere Reifen und nach 40 Runden auf weiche Reifen gewechselt„Es war ein sehr kompliziertes Rennen in Bezug auf das Reifen-Management. Aufgrund der Reifentemperaturen konnten wir die mittlere Reifenmischung nicht zum Arbeiten bekommen. Wir mussten auf eine Dreistopp-Strategie wechseln, die sich als Nachteil für uns herausgestellt hat. Mit unserer derzeitigen Pace konnten wir keine höheren Erwartungen haben. Ich habe weiterhin grosses Vertrauen in mein Team, da jeder sein Bestes gibt. Ich glaube weiterhin, dass wir in Barcelona gestärkt zurückkommen. Wir werden einen Schritt nach vorne machen und um vordere Platzierungen und Punkte kämpfen.“

Adrian Sutil (Startnummer 99):
Sauber C33-Ferrari (Chassis 03/Ferrari)
Gestartet auf weichen Reifen – In der 6. Runde Ausfall„Es war leider ein sehr kurzes Rennen für mich. Schon während der Einführungsrunde bemerkte ich, dass etwas nicht stimmt. Bereits zu diesem Zeitpunkt hat der Motor nicht mehr richtig reagiert. Als der Start dann freigegeben wurde, hatte ich plötzlich kaum mehr Leistung. Ich habe in der ersten Runde einige Plätze verloren und fiel auf den letzten Platz zurück. Ich bin noch ein paar Runden gefahren und kam dann im Anschluss an die Box. Dort haben wir versucht, das Problem zu lösen, es liess sich aber nicht auf die Schnelle beheben, und so musste ich das Rennen aufgeben. Dennoch bin ich weiterhin positiv und schaue nach vorne.“

Monisha Kaltenborn, Teamchefin:
„Natürlich ist es sehr schade, dass Adrian bereits nach wenigen Runden gravierende Motorprobleme hatte und so gar nie richtig ins Rennen kam. Bei Esteban müssen wir die Daten analysieren, um zu verstehen, warum er plötzlich so viel Haftung an der Hinterachse verlor. Natürlich sind wir mit einer solchen Performance nicht zufrieden. Es ist klar, dass wir durch eine schwierige Phase gehen, aber wir werden jetzt bestimmt nicht den Kopf in den Sand stecken, sondern konzentriert weiter arbeiten und uns darauf fokussieren, das Maximum aus unserem Entwicklungspaket für das Rennen in Barcelona herauszuholen.“

Giampaolo Dall’Ara, Leitender Ingenieur an der Rennstrecke:
„Das ist sicherlich kein Resultat, mit dem wir zufrieden sein können. Für Adrian war das Rennen bereits zu Ende, bevor es überhaupt richtig angefangen hatte. Sein Auto hatte ein Motorproblem, das Ferrari nun genauer untersuchen muss. Für Esteban war der Anfang des Rennens in Ordnung. Er startete auf den weichen Reifen, die wie erwartet gekörnt haben. Die mittleren Reifen haben einigermassen funktioniert, aber ab Runde 25 haben die Hinterreifen massiv an Grip verloren. Daraufhin mussten wir von einer geplanten Zweistopp- zu einer Dreistopp-Strategie wechseln. Wir müssen nun analysieren, was das tatsächliche Problem war. Unsere einzige Chance war es, das Maximum aus den neuen Reifen herauszuholen, aber unsere Performance war heute ganz einfach nicht gut genug.

Scuderia Toro Rosso F1 Team - 2014 FORMULA 1 UBS Chinese Grand Prix Race @ Shanghai International Circuit Sunday 20 April review

Daniil Kvyat (STR9 - 03)
Race Position: 10th

“It felt great today and I ’m very happy with my performance. I had a g ood start and I ma naged to make up some positions during the first lap . Our pace was very strong today and I enjoyed the fight with Jenson pretty much throughout the race. We did a good job with the tyre management , so we w ere able to stay out longer. Even though it all went very well today, I think there ’s still a lot more to come from th e car, so I ’m really looking forward to starting the European part of the season, where I hope to get some more points.”

Jean - Eric Vergne (STR9 - 04)
Race Position: 12th

“First of all, congratulations to Daniil for his good race and another point for him and the team. As for my race, I had a bad start and a bad first lap. We need to understand what happened exactly to improve this aspect. After that, I could not make the best out of the o ption tyres because I was stuck behind Button, so it was not possible to build a gap and pull away. It was definitely a tough race but we should n ot have to forget some positive aspects: we had a really good qualifying yesterday, the general pace was not bad a nd we know exactly the direction to take in order to improve. This is the reason why I'm convinced that we can be stronger in a few weeks ’ time in Barcelona.”

Franz Tost ( Team Principal ) “ Daniil did another fantastic race, with his lap times always quite competitive. To start from the 13 th position on the grid and bring home one point certai nly shows the good performance . Jean - Eric had a poor start, which compromised his race and didn't allow him to finish with a better result. We have to find out the reasons for this, in order to be better prepared for the next race in Barcelona, where we will have some new parts that will hopefully help us improve our general performance.”

Ricard o Penteado (Renault Sport F1 track support leader ) “ Another strong points finish for Daniil, who did a very good job from 13 th on the grid. JEV lost some places at the start. We did our best with the power unit, but his strategy became very difficult in the traffic and it was hard to make progress. It’s a shame as we had the pace for points with both cars but we’ll try again in Spain.”

Sauber F1 Team - 2014 FORMULA 1 UBS Chinese Grand Prix FP3 & Qualifying @ Shanghai International Circuit Saturday 19 April review

The rainy qualifying for the Chinese Grand Prix in Shanghai left the two Sauber F1 Team drivers, Adrian Sutil and Esteban Gutiérrez, with mixed feelings. While Sutil put in a good performance and made it into Q2, Gutiérrez suffered a technical problem with the brake-by-wire system and got stuck in Q1. He ended up 17th.

Weather: Rain and wet, 14-15°C air, 16-17°C track

Esteban Gutiérrez (car number 21):
Sauber C33-Ferrari (Chassis 04/Ferrari)
Qualifying: 17th in Q1 (1:58.988 min /Full wet tyres)3rd practice: 15th (1:57.468 min / Full wet und Intermediate tyres / 9 laps)

“Today we had tricky and difficult conditions. At the same time, I am frustrated as I could have made it into Q2.On my last lap I had an unexpected technical issue from Turn 6 on. The brake-by-wire went to the safety mode, so the feeling in the brake pedal and the brake balance changed. I had to deal with this issue through most of my last lap, but, nevertheless, I almost made into Q2. Unfortunately, I then made a mistake in the last corner. For the race tomorrow we have to be consistent and take advantage of every opportunity that comes up. This is the only way to push forward. We are still waiting for the car updates which will be in Barcelona. There we expect to make a step forward.”

Adrian Sutil (car number 99):
Sauber C33-Ferrari (Chassis 03/Ferrari)
Qualifying: 14th in Q2 (1:57.393 min /Full wet tyres)3rd practice: 13th (1:56.760 min / Full wet and Intermediate tyres / 8 laps)

“I am satisfied with today’s qualifying. Although the conditions were not easy, I am happy that we got through to Q2. This is a better performance in comparison to the last qualifying sessions. We were able to benefit from the wet conditions and it was better than under the dry ones. This is a small step and I hope we continue with this trend. There is still a lot to do, but it is great that we are not starting from the back rows. We can build on this. We did a lot of set-up changes for the wet conditions and we are satisfied with the performance of the car. Now we hope that we also have a good race tomorrow. If the conditions are dry for the race, I believe it will be difficult for us. However, we have to look forward and try to make up positions.”

Monisha Kaltenborn, Team Principal:
“This qualifying showed the technical measures we took for this race had a positive effect and point to the right direction. This was mainly reflected in Adrian’s result. Esteban suffered a technial problem, which led to him not making it through from Q1. Nevertheless, we were able to reduce the gap to our direct competitors. This gives us confidence for the coming races, where we will introduce further development steps.”

Giampaolo Dall’Ara, Head of Track Engineering:
“This qualifying reflects more or less where we currently are. Adrian did a solid job and qualified 14th while Esteban was hindered by a technical issue with the brake-by-wire system, which we have to look into. Finally he just missed Q2. According to the weather forecast for tomorrow the conditions should be dry, so the picture could be different in the race.

UBS Grosser Preis von China - Qualifikation - Samstag

Das verregnete Qualifying zum Grossen Preis von China in Shanghai hinterliess bei den Sauber F1 Team Fahrern Adrian Sutil und Esteban Gutiérrez gemischte Gefühle. Während Sutil mit einer guten Leistung den Vorstoss ins Q2 schaffte, blieb Gutiérrez wegen eines technischen Problems mit dem Brake-by-Wire-System im Q1 hängen. Er landete auf Rang 17.

Wetter: Regen und nass, 14-15°C Luft, 16-17°C Asphalt

Esteban Gutiérrez (Startnummer 21):
Sauber C33-Ferrari (Chassis 04/Ferrari)
Qualifikation: 17. in Q1 (1:58,988 min / Regenreifen)3. Training: 15. (1:57,468 min / Regen- und Intermediate Reifen / 9 Runden)

„Heute herrschten schwierige Bedingungen. Zudem bin ich enttäuscht, dass ich es nicht ins Q2 schaffte, obwohl dies möglich gewesen wäre. In meiner letzten Runde hatte ich ab Kurve 6 ein technisches Problem. Das Brake-by-Wire-System schaltete in den Sicherheitsmodus, was sowohl das Gefühl beim Bremsen wie auch die Bremsbalance stark verändert. Unglücklicherweise ist mir dann noch ein Fehler in der letzten Kurve unterlaufen. Morgen im Rennen müssen wir möglichst konstant sein und jede Möglichkeit nutzen, die sich bietet. Das ist der einzige Weg, der uns entscheidend nach vorne bringt. Wir warten auf die Verbesserungen, die für Barcelona geplant sind, denn damit haben wir die Möglichkeit, uns zu verbessern.“

Adrian Sutil (Startnummer 99):
Sauber C33-Ferrari (Chassis 03/Ferrari)
Qualifikation: 14. in Q2 (1:57,393 min / Regenreifen)3. Training: 13. (1:56,760 min / Regen- und Intermediate Reifen / 8 Runden)

„Ich bin zufrieden mit dem heutigen Qualifying. Obwohl die Bedingungen nicht einfach waren, freue ich mich, dass wir ins Q2 gekommen sind. Das ist eine bessere Leistung im Vergleich zu den letzten Qualifikationen. Wir haben von den nassen Bedingungen profitieren können, und es war heute besser als im Trockenen. Das ist ein kleines Zeichen und ich hoffe, dass es so weitergeht. Es gibt weiterhin viel zu tun, aber es ist schön, dass wir nicht mehr ganz hinten stehen. Darauf können wir aufbauen. Wir haben einige Veränderungen am Auto für Regenbedingungen vorgenommen und sind mit der Performance ganz zufrieden. Nun hoffen auf ein ebenso gutes Rennen morgen. Falls es morgen trocken sein sollte, wird es schwierig. Wir können allerdings nur nach vorne schauen, und versuchen Positionen zu gewinnen.“

Monisha Kaltenborn, Teamchefin:
„Dieses Qualifying-Ergebnis zeigt, dass die Massnahmen, die wir im Hinblick auf dieses Rennen getroffen haben, ihre Wirkung nicht verfehlten. Das schlug sich insbesondere in Adrians Resultat nieder. Bei Esteban trat ein technisches Problem auf, das zu seinem Ausfall in Q1 führte. Wir haben den Abstand zu unseren direkten Konkurrenten etwas verkleinern können. Das gibt uns Zuversicht für die kommenden Rennen, bei denen weitere Entwicklungsschritte folgen werden.““

Giampaolo Dall’Ara, Leitender Ingenieur an der Rennstrecke:
„Das Ergebnis des Qualifyings zeigt in etwa, wo wir derzeit stehen. Adrian hat mit dem 14. Startplatz für morgen einen guten Job gemacht. Aufgrund eines technischen Problems mit dem Brake-By-Wire-System hat es Esteban leider nicht ins Q2 geschafft. Wir müssen das nun genauer analysieren. Das Rennen wird laut Wettervorhersage unter trockenen Bedingungen stattfinden, weshalb sich die Kräfteverhältnisse morgen ändern könnten."

Qualifying Best lap: (Q1) 1: 57.477 , (Q2) 1: 56.584, (Q3) 1:56.773 , pos. 9th 

“I'm really pleased with my qualifying, it's been a great lap. I'm happy with myself as all my qualifying laps this year so far have been good laps, without mistakes. This car is pretty difficult to drive in the wet condition, so to make it into Q3 even today is a big satisfaction for me and the team. You really have to make your perfect lap and I think I did. As for tomorrow, the weather forecast says it's going to be dry, which is a much more suitable condition for our car, so we can expect a good race. In the long runs our pace looks competitive, so I will do my best to make a good start and from the ninth position on the grid, if everything comes together, we can definitely aim for some more points .”

“This was a very tricky qualifying session today and even though I gave it my all, I was not able to go any faster than this. It seems that I have lost a lot of grip between this morning ’s FP3 and Qualifying, so I ’m eager to have a look at the data later on. O verall I ’m d isappointe d with how things went today, but I’m confident we can s till have a good race tomorrow, especially if it is going to be dry.”

James Key (Technical Director) “The conditions for today ’ s qualifying were clear but totally unpredictable. There seemed to be a micro climate around the circuit so it was difficult to tell what was going on where. We had a plan but remained flexible and in the end this helped us cope well with the tricky conditions and the guys on the pit wall did a very good job. Q1 turned out as we had hoped for , even though we took a bit of a gamble , as we started on used Intermediates. Jev did a great job getting through to Q3 , as it was a tight battle in difficult conditions .

Sadly, Daniil didn’t make it through to Q3, which is disappointing as he showed good pace so far today . We will have a look at the reasons for this, but still, P13 is more than adequate to start the race from. Assuming the weather will stay dry tomorrow, we should be able to have a strong race as we are more competit ive in the dry than in the wet.”

Ricardo Penteado (Renault Sport F1 track support leader) “ The team did a great job with the timing and everything went very smoothly in conditions where it could all go very wrong. JEV was impressive and I’m pleased we could give him all the energy performance to capitalize on the opportunities. Daniil also did well and we are in a strong position for tomorrow’s race with both cars.”
