The last F2 champion, who says he made a small mistake on the qualifying laps, looks hopeful for the race.

"It was an interesting day at the first qualifying rounds and a little wet in the morning but the qualifying rounds were dry."

"I am satisfied with the sorting rounds, we did not expect to go through the second division, and everything else is fine."

"I'm sorry to have made a mistake at the fourth corner in the fastest season."

"I lost some time and maybe if we did not, we would be closer to our competitors and that would be good for us."

"I think we did not develop much compared to the tests, it's easy to drive with the car, so I can push it on this, it's a plus.

"I'm just getting started and I know there's a lot to learn."

Marcus Ericsson seems happy with Sauber's development.

"We were able to improve our engineers thanks to the struggle on the piste and in Switzerland, it was a good sort of order, and I think we were able to reduce the difference."

"The results do not meet our expectation, but the second division is very close, there are things we need to do, but it is also important that we take part in this fight."

"I am pleased with the development of the team, and I can not wait for the first race of the season."
