Scuderia Toro Rosso driver Jean-Eric Vergne turned the most laps on the STR8 during testing thus far this year. Out of the 106 laps, his best time was a 1:23.366.
Jean-Eric Vergne: “We did a solid day’s work on a track that is definitely more demanding than Jerez and that gives you a better picture of what your car can do. We did a really good job with a lot of laps, so I am very happy about that. Everything we test seems to give us more tools to work with, for when the time comes to start looking for the best set-up and balance and getting performance out of the car. I’d say the car shows excellent potential, which we will begin to exploit at the next test.”
Vergne continues to drive the STR8 tomorrow, for the final day of the test.
