2014 Silverstone: Sauber Formula One F1 Wednesday Test Recap


The Sauber F1 Team continued with the car development programme and set-up work during the second day of testing in Silverstone. Today, test and reserve driver Giedo van der Garde was behind the wheel of the C33. During the short runs, at the end of the afternoon session, the Dutch driver lost the car in Copse Corner and crashed into the guardrail, but was unhurt. Giedo completed a total of 84 laps.

Circuit: Silverstone / 5.891 km Driver: Giedo van der Garde Weather: sunny/overcast and dry, air 19-25 °C, track 20-30 °C Chassis / engine: C33-04 / Ferrari Laps today: 84 laps, 494.844 km Fastest lap: 1:36.327

Paul Russell, Test Engineer: "In the morning we worked on aerodynamic measurements and continued with the car development programme in order to improve its performance. We were able to finish our measurements, checked the new aero parts and continued our regular set-up work. In the afternoon we did set-up work for the car’s long term development. Shortly before the end of the session, unfortunately Giedo lost the car in Copse Corner and went off. He was uninjured."

Giedo van der Garde: "It was a pretty good morning, as we tested the hard tyres and they worked quite well. It seemed that we made some good changes to the car. With the medium tyres I struggled a bit with oversteer. In the afternoon, during my last outing on the soft tyres, I unfortunately lost the rear of the car and went into the barrier on my second lap when I was pushing. It was a hard crash, but luckily I am fine."

What comes next The Sauber F1 Team will be travelling to the German Grand Prix, the 10th round of the FIA Formula One Championship, taking place from the 18th to 20th of July 2014 in Hockenheim.
