Scuderia Toro Rosso F1 Suzuka Friday Practices review

25.09.2015: 2015 JAPANESE GRAND PRIX FRIDAY 25/09/2015 Carlos Sainz (STR10-04, Car 55)


2015 JAPANESE GRAND PRIX – FRIDAY 25/09/2015
 


Carlos Sainz (STR10-04, Car 55)

First Practice Session
Best lap: 1:49.434, pos.1st, 10 laps

Second Practice Session
Best lap: 1:50.418, pos. 7th, 6 laps



“Overall it was a good day and there’s a lot of positives to take from today. Even though it’s been raining all day and we haven’t been able to complete any laps in dry conditions, I managed to learn the track quickly and showed some good pace.


To finish FP1 on top was also something special, as it’s the first time I lead a Formula 1 practice session. The track is amazing, very challenging, and even more in the wet! I had a lot of fun out there and I hope we can continue like this the rest of the weekend.”
 


Max Verstappen (STR10-02, Car 33)

First Practice Session
Best lap: 1:50.940, pos. 6th, 10 laps

Second Practice Session
Best lap 1:50.542, pos. 8th, 5 laps



“It’s a shame that it’s been raining all day, as it would’ve been good to spend more time out on track. However, we did some running in the wet and the car felt good. I think we learned quite a bit and have a lot of data that will be useful if it also rains on Sunday during the race.


We know that normally we have a decent pace in the wet and it’s always enjoyable to drive in these conditions. I’m now looking forward to tomorrow, when hopefully we will have some dry running and have lots of fun at this great track.”


 
Phil Charles (Chief Race Engineer)


“This is another very difficult track for our two young drivers to take on: Max ran here last year in FP1 in the dry but neither have run here in the wet, or in fact have had that much wet running this year. So it was pleasing to see them both settling in well in wet conditions this morning.


Carlos had a particularly strong session considering he has not run here before. Both drivers learnt the track in these difficult conditions quite quickly. They also managed to negotiate the rivers in sector 1 without any worry. Unfortunately the afternoon’s FP2 session did not run as cleanly as FP1, with several small problems which curtailed running on both cars.


Nonetheless we still ticked off a few boxes on the program list when we did run and we have gathered a bit more info on the Inter tyres. To that end, we know we have got a little bit of work to do with the car balance overnight if there is further wet running this weekend, mainly to improve the tyre management. It will be interesting to see how the drivers and car are in the dry.”
