Mo­tor-Rac­ing - F1 team Sauber re­tains score­less driver Eric­s­son for 2017

Malta Independent - - SPORT -

For­mula One team Sauber says it ex­tended the con­tract of Swedish driver Mar­cus Eric­s­son for the 2017 sea­son. Eric­s­son has failed to score points this sea­son with no top-10 fin­ishes in 20 races ahead of the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix on Sun­day. The 26-year-old Eric­s­son scored nine points in his debut sea­son with Sauber last year. The fu­ture of team­mate Fe­lipe Nasr is un­cer­tain. Switzer­land­based Sauber says its sec­ond driver for 2017 “will be an­nounced in due course.” Nasr earned Sauber’s only scor­ing fin­ish two points from ninth place - last week at his home Brazil­ian Grand Prix.
