Comments from the Toro Rosso drivers after Friday practices for the Chinese Grand Prix

Tonio Liuzzi :

"A decent Friday as we covered a high mileage without any problems. We have a clear picture as far as tyres are concerned. On new rubber we could not get the most out of the tyres so our times on both prime and option were not quite as good as they should have been but we already have a good idea of what to run in the qualifying and the race. Overall, a positive day, but we still need to improve as our lap times are a long way off the pace, although you never know what fuel loads the others are running."

Sebastian Vettel:

"As is often the case on a Friday, the track was quite green this morning, which made life difficult, but this afternoon, things improved as more rubber went down. However, looking at where we are in the order today, we cannot be happy and there is a lot we have to do to improve. So the first job will be to analyse the runs and hopefully make a step forward tomorrow morning."
