Young Brazilian Sergio Sette Câmara described the test with Scuderia Toro Rosso at Silverstone on Wednesday as a “day I will never forget”.

It was the first time the Brazilian had ever driven a Formula 1 car and he showed a maturity to complete the test day without any mistakes, and was excited to drive the STR11 at such a historic track.

“It was a good day, I’m happy!” said Sette Câmara. “I had a lot of fun out there and it was great to work with a big team and drive at such an historic track like Silverstone – it’s even more impressive to drive a Formula 1 car here! It was a complete day, I drove consistently and I leave with a good feeling.”

The FIA European Formula 3 driver completed an impressive 82 laps, setting the ninth fastest lap with a 1:34.040, and after a successful test day, praised Toro Rosso team for the opportunity.

“I’d also like to thank the whole team for the hard work, as well as Red Bull for this opportunity – it’s a day I will never forget!” said Sette Câmara.

Toro Rosso have had a very positive test completing 173 laps over the two days, proving the reliability of the car and the skill of the drivers at a tricky circuit.

The teams are already looking ahead to Hungary, but the demands of the Hungaroring is very different to the high speed nature of Silverstone.
