Felipe Nasr feels he's earned his place at Sauber

Felipe Nasr has stated that he feels Sauber should keep him on for a third successive season.

The Brazilian's future remains in doubt, after Marcus Ericsson was confirmed at the team and Nasr's backing sponsor Banco do Brasil pulled out from Sauber.

"I feel like I did everything I could to deserve a place," Nasr said.

"I have been able to deliver the results that I think Formula 1 is looking for.  When the opportunity came I was there to take it, there to take points for the team.

Felipe Nasr out-scored Marcus Ericsson in their two years together, and Nasr's two points at Brazil this year meant they finished ahead of Manor.

"In my first year I scored 27 points for the team, which put us ahead of McLaren last year.  This year even with all the difficulties we faced, every time I had an opportunity in the race to take it we came very close to [scoring points], and in Brazil, we did it.

"Just putting in a balance over two years, I was there to deliver what the teams are looking for. So obviously I would be pretty disappointed if we're not here next year."
