GP Week : Issue 163
27 GPWEEK.com // PARTNERS: Sauber netted 20 valuable world championship points in Germany on Sunday courtesy of two sterling drivers by Kamui Kobayashi and Sergio Perez, consolidating their place as the sixth best constructor. Despite starting only 12th and 17th, Kobayashi and Perez made steady progress on two-stop strategies to cross the line in fifth and sixth, only for Kobayashi to be promoted to fourth thanks to Vettel’s post-race penalty. Kobayashi thinks that an even better result could have been possible had he qualified further up the grid. He was consistently closing on Raikkonen during his final stint, but ran out of laps in the end. “I am very happy for the team that we have managed to get a good result again,” said Kamui. “The performance of our car, especially in the dry, is really strong. If we only had qualified better we could have achieved even more today. At the beginning of the race it was a bit difficult on the medium tyres, but our strategy was good.” Perez was equally satisfied in the sister car, having come from 17th on the grid due to a grid penalty to claim sixth place at the flag. “My strategy was a little bit compromised because I had to do my first pit stop a bit earlier than planned. I felt something strange on the left hand side of the car - perhaps it was a puncture - but I don’t’ really know yet what it was,” said the Mexican. “This obviously meant we had to extend the later stint and I ended up with quite old tyres. The team did a great job today and this will give us a good boost for next week’s race in Budapest.” DOUBLE POINTS FINISH FOR SAUBER F1 >>> HOCKENHEIM
