Bernoulli Joins Toro Rosso

Scuderia Toro Rosso is pleased to announce that Daniel Bernoulli has joined the team to head up the new Diffuser Task Force. The Swiss airflow specialist is credited with discovering the principle of under- car flow, known universally as the "Bernoulli Principle." "I am honoured to be working alongside him," commented Technical Director, Giorgio Ascanelli

Sebastien Buemi (STR4-01)

"I think these high temperatures will make life difficult for everyone, but we are making sure we are as well prepared as possible to deal with the heat. At the moment, I feel good in the car although we still need to work to improve, even though it is difficult to say what our lap times mean, as we don't know what fuel loads the others were running. I am happy with the car, even if it can always be better, as I lacked traction coming out of the slow corners and occasionally, I locked the front wheels under braking."

Sebastien Bourdais(STR4-02)

"The track has changed a lot from the morning to the afternoon session and that has made it difficult to assess the two types of tyre. It seems that the difference in behaviour between the Prime and the Option is very much related to the track temperature increase. Therefore, this afternoon it was difficult to assess the effect of changes we made to the car as the conditions changed. But as always on a Friday, it is nearly impossible to evaluate where you are compared to the others, until qualifying.13th and 14th is not where we want to be tomorrow, but we will work hard now and then see what happens."
