Sauber: P10 not acceptable

Sauber: P10 not acceptable

Sauber team principal Monisha Kaltenborn has vowed that the team will do everything they can to get out of their current slump.

The Hinwil squad are currently at its lowest ebb as the team have gone 11 races without scoring a point - their longest points drought in F1 - and they are 10th in the standings, behind Marussia who have two points.

Everyone at Sauber, though, are determined to drag the team out of their current predicament.

"First of all, for morale it's a big step back, because in 22 years of Sauber in Formula 1 we've never had that position - so that's something we really don't want to think about," Kaltenborn told Autosport.

"Apart from that, of course, it has a financial impact. We should remain realistic but the message is that P10 is not acceptable for us.

"That [not scoring points] is still an idea I don't even want to contemplate. Our first target has to be to score points. Then, we have to see where that can take us."
