Scuderia Toro Rosso F1 Team - 2015 Grand Prix de Monaco #FP3 & #Qualifiying review Saturday 23 May @ Circuit de Monaco Monte Carlo

2015 MONACO GRAND PRIX – SATURDAY 23 /05 /2015 

Carlos Sainz (STR10 - 04, Car 55)
Third Practice Session - Best lap: 1:17.256, pos. 5th , 39 laps 
Qualifying - Best lap: (Q1) 1:17.246, (Q2) 1:16.762, (Q3) 1:16.931 , pos.8th 

He will have to start from the Pit lane, as per today ’s FIA doc nr. 24
“Considering where we were in FP1, FP2 and FP3, a P8 in today’s qualifying session could have seemed disappointing, but we need to remember that our objective was always to get into Q3 in order to fight for points in tomorrow’s race, and that’s what we had done today. I was actually quite satisfied and happy with a P8 in my debut in Monaco, but the stewards’ decision for me to start from the pit lane for not stopping at the weighing bridge in Q1 is very disappointing . 78 laps around here in tomorrow’s race will now be even tougher . In Monaco it’s very difficult to overtake but I will try my best.”

 Max Verstappen (STR10 - 03, Car 33)
Third Practice Session - Best lap: 1:17.788 , pos. 9th , 23 laps 
Qualifying - Best lap: (Q1) 1: 16.750 , (Q2) 1: 16.546 , (Q3) 1: 16.957 , pos. 10th 

He will start the race from P9 , following today ’s FIA doc nr. 24
“I’m disappointed with qualifying in P10 here in Monaco. Q1 and Q2 were okay, even though I was already starting to struggle with the tyres, but in Q3 it was really difficult to get the tyres up to temperature. I had no grip at all and started to lock - up a lot, and in my last run I was only eight hundredths faster with a new set of tyres. We have to make sure we look into this and under stand the reason . We will try and make the most out of today’s result in tomorrow’s race, but it won’t be easy. I will try and make a good start, stay out of trouble and hopefully fight for some more points.”

Ben Waterhouse ( Deputy Technical Director)
“We had hoped to get both cars into Q3 and that’s finally what we did – at least in terms of performance. Unfortunately Carlos missed the weigh bridge and he will now have to start from the pit lane, while in Max’s case, we are slightly disappointed as we feel there was more potential in the car and we haven’t managed to get the most of it today. However, considering it’s both Carlos and Max’s first time in a Formula 1 car her in Monaco, they have driven well this weekend. Looking forward to tomorrow, with Max we remain in a good position to achieve our main target of points. For Carlos, it will be a big challenge to finish in the top ten , howeve r, this is Monaco and anything can happen, so we will prepare ourselves as well as possible hop ing for a good result tomorrow.”
