SAUBER

Autosport (UK) - - RACE CENTRE -

Eric­s­son’s drive to 12th was im­pres­sive con­sid­er­ing he stopped for medi­ums un­der the early safety car and ran to the end. But the Q1 crash was what de­fined his hopes, forc­ing him onto the un­usual strat­egy. Rear-end­ing team-mate Le­clerc at the safety-car restart was un­for­tu­nate. Le­clerc found Suzuka a chal­leng­ing cir­cuit to get on top of, but he did so well, even though a mis­take cost him a Q3 place the car had the pace to achieve. He was un­der­stand­ably un­happy with Mag­nussen’s move on the straight, which forced him onto an al­ter­na­tive strat­egy.
