Kobayashi pleased with Sauber upgrades
7 October 2011 – Sauber is relying on a significantly updated car at this weekend’s Japanese Grand Prix, with local favourite Kamui Kobayashi having ended practice in 16th position following an off-track excursion. Heading into Suzuka, the Hinwil outfit is attempting to retake sixth in the Constructors’ Championship from Force India.
“My lap time doesn’t look good because I spun in a fast corner when I had my fresh set of Soft tyres.
“Overall I think we can improve the balance of the car, and also our pace, when we now go to look for the best possible solutions for what we have learned today.”
