Yesterday, the Scuderia Toro Rosso crew was robbed of the chance of seeing its new car make its track debut, when a red flag stopped the session with just five minutes of test time remaining. But today, Tonio Liuzzi was able to reward them with the perfect Valentine's Day gift of 43 relatively trouble-free shakedown laps.

"The last few weeks have been a real rush for all of us," said Chief Engineer, Laurent Mekies. "So it was great to see our new car finally running and completing a respectable 43 laps. This was very much a shakedown and systems check, with no thought of setting quick lap times."

"Now, we must push very hard over the coming weeks to make up for the fact we have only started running quite late. Like everyone else, our next step is the test at the Sakhir circuit in Bahrain, starting on 22 February."

Driver: Tonio Liuzzi
