2014 Chinese GP: Toro Rosso Formula One F1 Practice Recap


Daniil Kvyat (STR9-03) First Practice Session Best lap: 1:41.977, pos. 11th, 23 laps Second Practice Session Best lap: 1:39.648, pos. 10th, 26 laps "It was a good Friday and it didn’t take me long to learn the track. I found it quite straight forward and we were able to start work on our basic set-up straight away. We managed to get through our programme and collect a lot of data for us to study tonight. So hopefully we will find a good compromise for tomorrow."

Jean-Eric Vergne (STR9-04) First Practice Session Best lap: 1:41.505, pos. 7th, 26 laps Second Practice Session Best lap: 1:39.759, pos. 13th, 28 laps "I think it was a normal Friday. Today we needed to work on the long runs, in which we look pretty good. After today's sessions we feel confident we can have a good car for Sunday. As for tomorrow, I think we still have some work to do. The weather forecast is clearly predicting rain so it's difficult to say what to expect."

Phil Charles (Chief Race Engineer) "Overall a pretty good day for us. We worked through our programme with both cars, including a tyre test at the end, so we were able to collect lots of interesting data. It's another new track for Daniil and he's done a very good job settling in. Jev has also done a good job but he is not particularly happy with his car balance, so we’ve got a little bit of work to do there. Tonight we’ll have a close look at all the data and prepare ourselves for the remainder of the weekend, which should be quite interesting with rain expected tomorrow."

Ricardo Penteado (Renault Sport F1 track support leader) "We’ve had a good day today working through some new settings to help with energy management in particular. We are now much closer to the limits on both cars and the positive results that seem to have transferred across into the times as well. The only issue was a small water leak in the afternoon but this was detected very quickly and did not affect the programme, allowing us to rack up lots of mileage and data to go through this evening."
