Sauber confirms running order for first Barcelona F1 test


Sauber F1 Team has confirmed its running order for the next F1 pre-season test, set to take place in Barcelona next week.

Following on from an impressive display at the first 2015 test in Jerez at the beginning of the month, the Swiss team will be hoping to impress once again when the F1 community reconvenes at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya on February 19th.

Rookie Felipe Nasr will get behind the wheel of the new Sauber C34 car on the first and fourth days of the test, with teammate Marcus Ericsson getting some track time on days two and three.

After a barren 2014 that yielded not a single point, Sauber made an impressive start to testing by finishing towards the top of the cumulative timesheets. However, it is likely that the team’s pace was aided by low fuel loads and soft-tire runs, which are uncommon at this stage in testing.

Following next week’s test in Barcelona, the teams will get one last chance to try out their new cars at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya four days later at the final test, running from February 26th to March 1st.
