14th July, 2014 (F1Plus / Rosie Baillie) - Giedo van der Garde’s crash on day two of the Silverstone test has given Sauber extra work they ‘didn’t need’ in the build up to the German Grand Prix.

Reserve driver van der Garde crashed at Copse on day two of the test causing heavy damage to the car.

“On one side there are positive achievements in terms of overall progress, and on the other hand the amount of wreckage we brought back poses additional work we didn’t need in the preparation for the German Grand Prix,” said head of track engineering Giampaolo Dall'Ara.

van der Garde will be back behind the wheel of the C33 on Friday during free practice one.

It will be a first for the Dutchman who has never driven a Formula One car around Hockenheim.

“For me it will be the first time running in an F1 car in Hockenheim,” he said. “As the track is fairly close to Holland, I hope to see some Dutch flags around the circuit,”

“I like this track. I have raced there quite a lot in Formula 3, and my last time in Hockenheim was in 2012 for GP2. I got Pole Position, so I am looking forward to going back and to drive there for the first time with the C33.”
