Comments from the Toro Rosso drivers after Friday practices for the Australian Grand Prix
"As expected we are quite far behind at the moment as we learn about a lot of things that we should have done in testing. Lots of stuff on the car is brand new for today and so inevitably some of it didn't work."
"The one positive element is that it is clear that we will be able to develop this package through the season and can do something with it. It's going to be a tough time until we get some more testing under our belt, as we seem to be quite a way off the pace, unless some of those ahead of us were on low fuel loads."
"Quite a negative beginning. We had a few problems with the car, as it was very unstable at the rear. We did not really reach an understanding of what was causing it."
"Then I had a spin and damaged the rear wing and underside of the car, so I had to stop before the end of the session. That was a shame, because at the moment we really need to do as many kilometers as possible. Hopefully we can do more laps tomorrow."
Best lap: 1:30.383
Best lap 1.31.693
