Things can only get better for Sauber after a dismal 2014 in which it scored zero points for the first time in its 21-year history. Fortunately, the Swiss team’s new car looked good in testing and it’s signed a promising talent in 22-year-old Brazilian Felipe Nasr.

He’s joined by ex-Caterham man Marcus Ericsson – a solid but not blindingly quick driver who gave a reasonably good account of himself in difficult circumstances with the now-defunct team. With Lotus and Toro Rosso both looking to have made progress over the winter, the pressure is on Sauber to keep up.

Our verdict: Sauber simply must start achieving points-scoring finishes on a regular basis again to secure its long-term future in the sport.
