Toro Rosso: Priority was getting Jean-Eric settled
9 February, 2012
Feb.9 (Toro Rosso) Three French drivers out on track today, including Jean-Eric Vergne, having his first run in the new STR7.
The initial priority was getting Jean-Eric settled in the car for the first time, then the team worked through an extensive aero test programme, which is why the driver did a lot of short runs, collecting data for different aero configurations.
We got through the programme, while at the same time Jean-Eric was getting up to speed with the car. The conditions on track were much better today for aero work, as there was much less wind. A relatively long run was completed in the afternoon and the plan is to do an even longer one tomorrow.
