Sauber driver Marcus Ericsson believes he was 'lucky' to collect a point at the Belgian Grand Prix.

Ericsson finished the race in 10th position to earn his seventh point of the year but says that Sauber's pace was not as strong as the Swiss team anticipated.

"I had a good start, managing to pass Daniil [Kyvat] with a good move into Turn 5," he said.

"Quite early in the race we realised I had some debris stuck to the floor, which made us lose downforce in the first stint.

"We could not keep up with the competition, so we lost some ground, which was a bit frustrating. For the second stint we cleared the debris away and I was able to start to push more.

"Even with that, the pace was not as strong as we expected. We were a bit lucky in the end, and we were able to score one point. For me it is great to be back in the points for the second race in a row."
