Nasr eyes Sauber exit for 2017


Canadian GP: Sauber’s Felipe Nasr admits he is looking for options elsewhere for the 2017 Formula 1 season, following Sauber’s lack of potential thanks to their financial setbacks. 

Felipe Nasr addressed the media after his coming-together with team-mate Marcus Ericsson in Monaco, and the Brazilian claims his management team is already in talks with several other teams for 2017, and believes he will have a more clearer picture mid-way through the 2016 F1 season.

Nasr had a brilliant start to his F1 campaign – having scored a brilliant fifth place during his debut race in Australia 2015, and the Brazilian was seen scoring points on several occasions during 2015, however due to Sauber’s lack of development during 2016, with financial problems to blame, Nasr hasn’t been able to score even a single point – with his best finish this year being 14th place.

“Since I came into F1, I had many dreams I wanted to achieve – and I still do,” Nasr is quoted on Globo

“I do not want to let my opportunities pass. I have good people working on it so that we can take the next step in considering all our options for 2017, even if it’s too early for anything right now.

“However, I think that, from the middle of the year, we will start to know what options there are, but we have options – and more than one.”
