Sergey Sirotkin who is set to take a seat at Sauber next year has insisted he feels no pressure ahead of his debut.
Speaking to crash.net Sirotkin said “I don’t feel any pressure, it was the opposite, I have enjoyed learning about the higher stages of motor racing. I am proving a lot that I am stronger in myself as a driver.
“Our preparation programme has just started so I am not quite ready but by the time the first race comes, I will be ready, I know that. There is nothing I am afraid of; I am looking forward to it.
“It’s a bit different driving an F1 car. I need to get used to the power steering. It took a bit of time but we were happy with our lap times at Sochi. The minimum speeds in the corner are very similar to my current car.
“The step that needs to be made is not surprising, it is to be expected like any other championship.”
