Scuderia Toro Rosso F1 Team - 2015 Chinese Grand Prix #FP3 & Qualifying review Saturday 11 April 2015 @ Shanghai International Circuit China


Max Verstappen (STR10 - 03, Car 33)
Third Practice Session - Best lap: 1:39.274 , pos. 9th , 19 laps 
Qualifying - Best lap: (Q1) 1: 38.387 , (Q2) 1: 38.393, pos. 13th 

“I’m happy with how the car has improved compared to yesterday. In FP3 we looked stronger and even though this is a very tricky track, I kept working to find the right balance and finally I found it just in time for the Qualifying session. Of course, my 13 th position doesn’t show exactly where we should have been , as I think Q3 was pos sible for me today, but a lock - up at Turn 6 prevente d me from it. We now have a bit more work to do for tomorrow , but I think we can be strong. We have a good race pace so I’m confident we will be able to fight for points again.”

Carlos Sainz (STR 10 - 04, Car 55)
Third Pract ice Session - Best lap: 1:39.113 , pos. 7th , 17 laps 
Qualifying - Best lap: (Q1) 1: 38.622 , (Q2) 1: 38.538 , pos. 14th 

“This morning in FP3 we made a step forward in terms of performance and the car felt better, but when we went into Qua ly this afternoon we didn’t manage to find that extra bit. By missing out on two or three tenths we didn’t get into Q3 and we’re not in the best position for tomorrow. However, we know that we have a decent pace on long runs and we showed some good consiste ncy yesterday, so to finish in the top ten is still our main target.”

James Key (Technical Director)
“Today’s was a very tight quali fying session. We’re disappointed not to have got at least one car into Q3 because it was certainly possible and we missed out by only a couple of tenths. Q1 was fine and, as we hoped, we certainly improved the car compared to yesterday in short runs, but in Q2 we didn’t quite get those last laps together. The fact of it being such a tight field compromised our Q3. Bu t what’s important and what we need to focus on is tomorrow. We’ve got a very clear mission ahead of us and we know that this weekend our race pace has been better than our short run pace, so we need to make the best out of it and fight for the points positions.”
