Daniil Kvyat: "As a rookie with so much to learn, this week in Jerez has not been the start I would have wanted."

Having been in Jerez since Monday, taking a keen interest in all the work the team was doing, Daniil Kvyat finally got his first taste of track action ahead of the 2014 season.

The Russian managed eight laps at the wheel of the STR9, before a problem with our systems put an end to his running. Once that was fixed he managed one more lap in the afternoon.

Clearly, the team has had a difficult time over the past four days, even if this was always a possibility given the rule changes. However, the Toro Rosso engineers and its partners now have two weeks to study the situation and be much better prepared for the next four days of testing that get underway at the Sakhir circuit in Bahrain on 19 February.

Daniil Kvyat: “As a rookie with so much to learn, this week in Jerez has not been the start I would have wanted. However, I trust my team and I trust Renault, so with some hard work, I am sure we can be in better shape and start to catch up at the next test. There have been a few positives, because we have acquired some useful data, even with limited running. Some questions have therefore already been answered and I was able to get a feel for the car in wet conditions.”
