Alguersuari positive after Jerez test

1 Mins read

Toro Rosso's Jaime Alguersuari was positive after completing 98 laps in the STR, despite finishing bottom of the timesheets on day four of the Jerez test. “It was very useful to drive the car with different fuel loads and in different track conditions, in the dry, in the wet and “intermediate” conditions.”

Despite a wet start to the day, the team managed to get through their testing programme, which today included race set-up work, using different compositions of the Bridgestone tyres, and comparison of aero parts.

Chief Engineer Laurent Mekies was pleased the reliability of both the car and the drivers in Jerez. “The past four days have been satisfactory, as the car never once stopped out on track and the two drivers didn't make any mistakes, which always helps!”

The team will remain in Jerez for the next session, which begins next Wednesday. Buemi will be behind the wheel for the first two days, before handing over to Alguersuari.
