Sauber Junior Team surges into F3 points at Silverstone

The Sauber Junior Team showed impressive pace during the second FIA Formula 3 Championship race at Silverstone on Sunday as two of its drivers surged in to the top 10 during a frenetic battle.

The driver development squad showed promising speed during practice and qualifying at the home of British motorsport, but all three drivers struggled to make an impact in Saturday’s opening race.

That meant Lirim Zendeli started the second race from P15 on the grid while team-mates Fabio Scherer and Raoul Hyman lined up P16 and P28 respectively.

In a frantic 20-lap encounter in drizzly conditions at the 5.89km Silverstone circuit, all three drivers impressively worked their way forward, with Lirim and Fabio fighting hard for the points-paying...

Early F3 pace doesn’t convert into points at Silverstone

The Sauber Junior Team was unable to convert its promising FIA Formula 3 Championship practice and qualifying pace into points during the first race of the weekend at Silverstone today.

The driver development squad started the fourth round of the season strongly and had two of its cars inside the top-ten during the first acclimatisation session at the home of British motorsport on Friday, before Fabio Scherer impressed as he placed his car P9 on the grid for the opening 20-lap battle.

With air and track temperatures for Race 1 considerably cooler than they were a day earlier, reigning ADAC Formula 4 Champion Lirim Zendeli, racing at Silverstone for the first time in his career, made up two places as he led the Sauber Junior Team cars...

We came into today’s race in optimistic mood but unfortunately things didn't go our way.
