Different set up for Sauber drivers in Australia


 

In Australia Sauber drivers preferred to race with  different car set up and different wing specs . Kobayashi raced with the higher downforce launch front wing spec and the additional beam mini plane that guarantee a more stable car especially when braking late , something suitable to Kobayashi’s  driving style and his appeal of overtaking . On the contrary Perez raced with the lower downforce front wing , that was first seen at Jerez on February,  having also the beam mini plane removed , a configuration  more appropriate to his “velvet” driving style which is to prioritize conservation of tires in good condition . The later is reflected on Perez different pit stop strategy to Kobayashi .

 

Pit stop strategy

Sergio Perez  Medium -Lap24 , Soft –Lap 34
Kamui Kobayashi Soft –Lap 13 , Soft –Lap 23  ,  Medium –Lap 22

 

 

Lastly Australian rainy weather was not enough and Sauber  run both cars  having the large engine cover funnel  .
