Takuma Sato today completed his third and final test for Scuderia Toro Rosso at Jerez in Spain.
Following closely from the recent Barcelona test, Taku had a very successful test completing the full programme that the team had scheduled.
Taku commented "I have thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience with Toro Rosso and would like to thank the whole team for everything they have done for me.
Over the three tests I have done with them, I have been made to feel so welcome and integrated into the team operations.
Since my last race back in April I have been so hungry to race again and am so motivated to return.
Now of course, I just hope that I will be given the chance to race with this great team next year.
I feel that I am satisfied with the whole working process with engineers, mechanics and of course in the cockpit during the test - even after my long absence from F1, so hope it will be enough to convince the management for their decision. "
