Nasr drugim kierowcą Saubera na sezon 2015

Nie musieliśmy długo czekać na potwierdzenie tożsamości kierowcy, który w przyszłym sezonie zasiądzie u boku Marcusa Ericssona w bolidzie zespołu Sauber. Walkę o fotel wygrał Felipe Nasr, choć do końca w grze pozostawiali Esteban Gutierrez i Giedo van der Garde. Nasr to były mistrz British Formula 3, a co ważniejsze ma za swoimi plecami Banco do Brasil, sponsora, którego logo zajmie sporą część powierzchni przyszłorocznego C34.

Monisha Kaltenborn:

“We have been following Felipe’s career path for some time now, and he fully deserves his position in Formula One having had a very successful career in junior categories. We are happy that he will be driving for our team next year. This means that Brazil will have one more young and talented driver in the sport. Banco do Brasil has been an important partner for Felipe so far, and we are delighted that such a renowned company is contuing to support him during this important step. We look forward to this partnership.”

Felipe Nasr:

“It is a very important step in my career to sign with the Sauber F1 Team for the 2015 Formula One World Championship. This is an unforgettable moment that I owe to all of those who have supported me – my family, my friends, my sponsors, my teams and my country. Today the dream has come true. Sauber was responsible for the arrival in F1 of great names such as Felipe Massa, Kimi Raikkonen, Robert Kubica and Sebastian Vettel. I am proud now to also be part of this racing family. I had a wonderful year at Williams Martini, where I learned a lot and prepared myself to be a race driver in Formula One.”
