Sauber driver Felipe Nasr is looking forward to scoring points again in China after a disappointing Malaysian Grand Prix that resulted in a 12th place finish for the Brazilian. Nasr took advantage of the small field in the opening round of the 2015 season and secured a fifth place finish in Australia.
Shanghai proves to be a tough race each year on tires and cars, but Nasr is confident his team will get it right in China. Lewis Hamilton and Mercedes got it very right last year and won the race by a whole 18 seconds.
“The track has a combination of high-speed and low-speed corners, which is quite demanding for the tyres and challenging to find a good balance for the car,” Nasr said. “Besides that, the circuit has a straight which is the longest on the whole race calendar.”
