Jerez Test II Day 1: Toro Rosso report
17 February, 2010
Feb.17 (YF1) Driver: Sebastien Buemi; Chassis: STR5 – 02; Best time: 1:23.322, 79 laps
Just four days after the end of the last test session, the third and penultimate one of the winter got underway today, again at Jerez de la Frontera, with a total of eleven teams in action.
It was a case of same venue – same weather, as yet again, rain showers came and went throughout the day. At least the weather meant it was possible to acquire useful data regarding the optimum switching point between dry, intermediate and extreme wet tyres.
On the agenda in the Scuderia Toro Rosso camp was a brake system evaluation and fortunately, there were enough dry laps available for Sebastien to complete this. The STR5 had no major technical problems today and our Swiss driver will be in action again tomorrow, when more rain is forecast.
