Sauber: It was a very positive day

The Sauber F1 Team had a positive third day of testing with an intensive programme for Marcus Ericsson.

The Swede was able to complete 126 laps overall – making him the second busiest driver in terms of the amount of laps today. The Sauber F1 Team continued its extensive analysis of the Sauber C36-Ferrari by continuing with aero tests, set-up work and comparing different tyre compounds as well as focusing on short and long runs.

Marcus Ericsson: “It was a very positive day. We had a trouble-free day in which I managed to run 126 laps overall. It was very important that we could work through the planned programme without having issues with the car. I tested several tyre compounds , and it was interesting to compare them on different stint lengths – on short as well as long runs. We had an intensive programme today, during which we learned a lot. We have loads of data to analyse in order to get a better understanding of the car.”
