Brendon Hartley has said he is ‘feeling strong’ ahead of the race at Hockenheim this weekend.

The Toro Rosso driver feels he has managed to extract all he can from his car this weekend.

He said: “It was really enjoyable to drive Hockenheim for the first time in a Formula 1 car.

I felt pretty strong in both sessions, particularly at the end of FP2 during the high fuel long run.”

He is optimistic that the team will be able to finish the race in the points.

He said: “I think it’s just two or three tenths to get to the top 10.”

Chief Race Engineer, Johnathan Eddolls said: “Towards the end of the session, Brendon carried out some aero correlation runs and Pierre did a longer run on the Soft tyre, given that we weren’t planning to run it again on Friday.”

He added: “Moving into FP2, we made quite a number of changes to both cars on the mechanical and aero side to improve both the grip and balance.”

“The changes we made certainly helped and both drivers set reasonably representative lap times.”
