Fe­lipe Nasr’s chances of re­main­ing with the Sauber team next sea­son have been dealt a blow af­ter he has lost the back­ing of a key spon­sor. Banco do Brasil have pulled out, mean­ing that Manor racer Pas­cal Wehrlein is now favourite for the seat. Team boss Mon­isha Kal­tenborn said: “They [Banco do Brasil] have in­ter­rupted their 2017 spon­sor­ship pro­gramme. Our seat is still open, we are in­clud­ing that in our as­sess­ment and that’s all there is to say.”
