Toro Rosso Show Good Reliability on Day Two in Barcelona


Toro Rosso completed more laps than any other team in Barcelona today as they took to the track for their second day of testing at the final pre-season session in Barcelona.

Sebastien Buemi, who completed 120 laps, finished the day as the second fastest driver, with only Sebastian Vettel setting a faster lap time.

The Swiss driver completed a full race simulation for the team in the morning, whilst the afternoon was spent doing lower-fuel runs, and practicing ‘live’ pit stops.

“We can be pleased with what we achieved today, because with 120 laps, it meant we completed all the programme we had planned,” Buemi said. “Apart from the race simulation, I was also able to do a qualifying simulation. We showed a reasonable performance level and the team did a very good job in preparing the car so well. Overall, it has been a productive test.

“Now, we must wait and see if we can make even more progress over the next two days with Jaime (Alguersuari) driving and then we can see where we really are when we get to Melbourne.”
