F1 » Sauber looking to bounce back after sour Spa

Neither Kamui Kobayashi or Sergio Perez had the chance to build on their qualifying performances at the Belgian Grand Prix, and are looking for better luck in Italy this weekend.

I'm kinda hoping for a so-so qualifying now and an amazing race.. Because seriously.. I've been following Sauber for awhile now and they never, ever have a good quali and race. It's either good quali, bad race or bad quali good race. I thought Spa was going to change all that, but the race was a disaster once again :(.

@ LJ

It's not exactly like they had much of a choice in the race...

But, with the Saubers looking pretty fast and the drivers looking in good form, Monza could be a good race for them...

Come on Kobayashi, GET ON THAT PODIUM!!!!

kobayashi cool and unfazed by 2nd (he says) but then seemed to burn his brakes out on the warmup lap (maybe causing panic on the grid when other drivers saw all the smoke) and then gets a lousy start. Needs to do better next time.

I call Sauber Team and Engineers to check and investigate why always only Koba's car has problems in race day.
I support Sauber because Peter dares to sign unknown Japanese driver Kamui Kobayashi instead of traditional European rookie driver. For F1 fans, we witness his great ability to maneuver over taken and raw speed also we enjoyed him fighting with Button in Portuguese GP.
I believe if he hadn't brake over heating problem at start of the race in Belgium and then he can get away from the mass accident. Koba is very good starter and he always gain 2 to 5 places at the start but not anymore. Why?
Anyway we don't want to think something funny thing is happening in Sauber Team because too many coincident make me suspicion.

Sauber is doing great.
There was nothing they could do in turn 1 in Spa.
Scrambles let aside, time will come for both Kamui and Sergio to reach far, hopefully in Monza. The car is improving, is consistant and both are good tyre keepers.
Since Monisha took over CEO, they have been improving every race.
I wish them good.
