Kevin Ceccon:

“This was an incredible experience for me, driving a Formula 1 car and working with this team and first, I must say thank you to Scuderia Toro Rosso for giving me this fantastic opportunity. We got through a lot of work today, testing parts for the car as well as next season's Pirelli tyres, running them in comparison to this year's. I drove two long runs, from which I was able to understand a lot.

“In fact, I felt that in one day of testing with an F1 car, I learned more than in several days in other categories of car! Therefore today was very good as a learning experience for me and I am looking forward to making more progress tomorrow from a personal point of view and also in terms of helping the team for next season.”

Laurent Mekies (Chief Engineer):

“In the morning, we resumed our evaluation of various aero components and in the afternoon the work centred on tyre testing. However, while yesterday, Coletti's programme was based on a series of short runs, today, Ceccon was able to get a taste of what driving a Grand Prix might be like, as he did a race simulation in what was the hottest part of the day! Even though we asked a lot of him with a complex programme, he delivered a faultless performance.

“From a team point of view, it was another positive day, as we ran trouble free throughout and our programme is therefore going to plan. Tomorrow, we hope to bring it to a successful conclusion, running Coletti in the morning and Ceccon in the afternoon.”
