Felipe Nasr says that Sauber has surpassed expectations in 2015 after recovering from its worst ever season in Formula 1.
Sauber failed to score a point last year and slumped to 10th in the standings, but this season have amassed 36 points and lie eighth in the championship.
"If you look back at last year, they didn’t score any points in the season and we have surpassed any expectations for this season scoring quite a good amount of points when we could, when we had the opportunity," explained Nasr, who is gearing up for his home race this weekend.
"What I like to see is the motivation of the people there. Nobody is giving up on what we have, what we can do.
"We’ve got good people inside the team. It’s just a matter of time, we have to be patient now and things are looking better for next year so all I want to do is also to fight for better results so when things come together, when it’s time to do it, I’m quite confident next year we’re going to do a step forward again."
