Sauber drivers Kamui Kobayashi and Sergio Perez believe that the fast flowing Spa Francorchamps circuit will suit their C31 machines.

Sauber sits 6th in the Constructors Championship as the F1 circus resumes for the second half of the season.

"Spa-Francorchamps is one of my favourite circuits. I like its high speed corners, and I also like how this track is integrated into the landscape with a lot of greenery. This gives it a very special atmosphere", said Kobayashi. "I’m confident we can be very competitive under all kinds of conditions in Spa because the characteristics of this track with its fast corners should suit our car. I’m really looking forward to this race."

Perez has already scored two podiums this season and is enthusiastic ahead of his second Belgian Grand Prix, having retired from the 2011 event.

"Spa-Francorchamps is quite a daunting track with a great history. It has its own character and circuits like that are difficult to find nowadays. I am very much looking forward to racing there again. I believe it is one of the favourites of any racing driver. It is also challenging, and it is good to start the second part of the season with it. I believe the fast circuit in the Ardennes will suit our car."
