Felipe Nasr to wait on Sauber

 Felipe Nasr has indicated he has the patience to wait for clarity regarding his future in F1.

Until mere days ago, the Brazilian looked set to lose his place at Sauber for 2017 to the Mercedes-backed Pascal Wehrlein.

But German Wehrlein, 22, is now the frontrunner to replace the suddenly-retired world champion Nico Rosberg at Mercedes.

"I had good talks with Sauber in the past few weeks," Mercedes team boss Toto Wolff told DPA news agency this week, referring to Wehrlein, "but now it's on hold."

And so Nasr, who has lost the bulk of his Banco do Brasil sponsorship, is vowing to wait, telling Brazil's UOL Esporte that he can theoretically "delay until February".

The FIA released a provisional 2017 entry list on Tuesday, showing one vacancy at Sauber and two at Manor.
