Toro Rosso: The afternoon did not go to plan
22 February, 2012
Feb.22 (Toro Rosso) Today was Daniel Ricciardo’s last day in the car for this test and he did not complete as many laps as expected because of a couple of stoppages. The last one cost the most time, due to a problem with a drive shaft. Tomorrow, Jean-Eric Vergne takes over driving duties for the final two days of this test.
Daniel Ricciardo: “The afternoon did not go to plan, but the morning was positive and we did all the runs we had planned for the first part of the day. We worked on making adjustments to the car balance, also trying some different mechanical changes to the car, which is why I did mainly short runs. I could feel the effect of these changes and the car reacted in the way we expected.”
