The Sauber drivers expect a more competitive showing in Singapore than the team have managed before at the street track.
“In the past this kind of track didn’t really suit our car,” said Kamui Kobayashi. “But with this year’s Sauber C31 things have changed.”
“I don’t see any reason why we shouldn’t be competitive there.”
Sergio Perez, who finished second at Monza, said the track should be “okay” for their car.
But head of track engineering Giampaolo Dall’Ara was more conservative with his expectations: “Out of the seven upcoming races I expect this one to be the most difficult for our C31.
“But we will have our next aero update in Singapore, which should help to compensate for this and still put us in a position for a strong race.”
