Toro Rosso have a positive Friday in Malaysia

1 Mins read

Sebastian Buemi was eight quickest in second practice today in Malaysia, as Toro Rosso aim to score their first points of the season this weekend.

Buemi also set a top-ten time in the morning practice session. He said the team have made a good start to their weekend in Malaysia. “I am happy with the way today went. In the morning we concentrated on finding out how our car behaved on this track and then in the afternoon, we completed a lot of laps, including a very long stint, to assess tyre behaviour.

“On the long run, I did 30 laps, which is over half a race distance and although the conditions are very tough in terms of the high temperature and humidity, I was fine in the cockpit. I am looking forward to tomorrow, because I think we have established a good base line from which to make progress in the last free practice, before tackling qualifying.”

Jaime Alguersuari finished the sessions 13th and 14th on a track where he has never driven before. “This is another new track for me, apart from a session on the simulator. Driving it for real is a different matter and I found it was quite a difficult track to learn, at the same time as understanding the behaviour of the two types of tyre.

“This afternoon's long run went well. I lost a little bit of time this morning with an electrical problem, but we have improved over the day and there is still more to come from me and from the car.”
