Bahrain 2016 - GP Preview - Sauber Ferrari
After the season’s opening race – and right after the Easter holidays – the Sauber F1 Team is travelling to the next grand prix destination: The island kingdom of Bahrain in the Arabian Gulf. Next weekend the Bahrain Grand Prix will be again held under the floodlights at the Bahrain International Circuit in the Sakhir desert. The Sauber F1 Team and its drivers are looking forward to this special event.
"The Bahrain Grand Prix is the first night race of the season. I especially enjoy the surroundings under the floodlights, which looks pretty nice on TV. I know the track well from my previous two seasons in Formula 1, but also from GP2, as I have been there many times. Last year I put in a good performance as well as having a strong race. I was going for points, which did not work out in the end due to other circumstances. However, I will take that positive feeling from last year’s race weekend with me."
"The Bahrain Grand Prix is a special race weekend for me. Having Lebanese roots from my grandfather, I have always liked being in the Middle East. For me as a driver it is nice to not only get huge support from Brazil, but also from where we are. The track itself is great fun to drive and to race at night makes the event even more special."
