Sauber need to look forward and not pine for points, as they have 'everything' they need to wind up the first half of the season in a 'positive way', that's the view of CEO Monisha Kaltenborn.

The Swiss-based outfit left the British Grand Prix empty handed last weekend, with Kamui Kobayashi finishing just outside the points in eleventh, while Sergio Perez went out early on after the incident with Pastor Maldonado.

Despite that disappointment though, Kaltenborn reckons the team can do well in Germany.

"We have failed to score points this season several times and for a variety of reasons. In hindsight it doesn't help to pine for those points, as now we have to move forward," she said.

"The Sauber C31 has proved to be quick on all types of circuits. Plus we've got two strong drivers - Sergio has been on the podium twice this year, and Kamui has been able to shine with a fourth in qualifying and a fifth in a race. Both have a fastest race lap to their names.

"We have everything it takes to wind up the first half of the season in a positive way, and that's our aim for Hockenheim."

Sauber's head of track engineering, Giampaolo Dall'Ara, meanwhile is also feeling confident ahead of the German Grand Prix: "We will have some minor modifications to the rear of the car, and we still don't know a hundred percent the effect of the development package we introduced in Silverstone, because, due to the bad weather, we could not do all the measurements we planned.

"However, I'm confident our performance will be strong again, as our car has been quick on various different tracks this year," he added ahead of the tenth round in the 2012 F1 World Championship.
