Raffaele Marciello declared himself pleased despite labelling his first practice outing with Sauber at the Malaysian Grand Prix as 'challenging'.

The Ferrari protege replaced Felipe Nasr for the opening 90 minute session at Sepang and completed 13 laps, posting the 13th quickest time.

"It was a good session for the team," said Marciello. "For me it was a bit challenging, as I was driving the Sauber C34 for the first time ever on a track I have not driven on before.

"However, I felt confident in the car quite quickly and was able to improve from run to run. I completed the planned programme, so I think I did a good job.

"The temperatures were already high, so the grip level on track was low. Besides that, the circuit was a bit dirty, so the conditions were not the best, but this war the same was for everyone."
