2014 Hungary GP: Toro Rosso Formula One F1 Practice Recap

Jean-Eric Vergne (STR9-01)

First Practice Session

Best lap: 1:27.683, pos. 7th, 30 laps

Second Practice Session

Best lap: 1:26.703, pos. 12th, 37 laps

"There is some good and bad today. This morning I was quite happy with the car’s behaviour but in the afternoon the balance got worse, making it difficult to drive. We need to understand why we lost performance in FP2 to get the best out of the car tomorrow but I still believe we have the potential to improve."

Daniil Kvyat (STR9-04)

First Practice Session

Best lap: 1:28.208, pos. 13th, 32 laps

Second Practice Session

Best lap: 1:26.689, pos. 11th, 42 laps

"It was a busy Friday as usual where we tried to get as many things done as possible. I enjoy driving this track but I wasn’t too happy with the car balance in FP1, but we made a step forward during the afternoon’s session. Hopefully we can make another step forward tomorrow."

Phil Charles (Chief Race Engineer)

"The morning session was quite good, but this did not continue into FP2, where we lost a little bit of balance with the car. At the end of the session, Daniil was happier with the balance, while JEV was not too pleased. There was a slight increase in track temperature which has given us a little bit of unhappiness with the car, so we need to understand the effect of the track temperature on the tyres and how we correct for that over the weekend. In terms of working through the programme, we managed to tick off most items on our relatively long test list.

But all in all we are not yet where we want to be with the car, so there is still some work to do tonight."

Ricardo Penteado (Renault Sport F1 track support leader)

"Power unit wise we had no issues today and were able to put in a lot of mileage, over 600km in total over both cars. This gave us a lot of data to analyse, which we hope will contribute to an overall improvement in performance tomorrow."
