Toro Rosso: We can be satisfied with the day’s work
6 February, 2013
The second day of testing in southern Spain went smoothly for Scuderia Toro Rosso as Daniel Ricciardo added a further 83 laps to the 70 he completed yesterday. With the usual proviso that lap times do not mean too much at testing, the Australian’s fastest lap puts him third out of twelve on the time sheet.
The engineers carried out the first scan of the car in terms of set-up and the programme also included some long runs to have a first look at the car in race trim and generally, it was another positive day’s work. Tomorrow, Jean-Eric Vergne will have his first encounter with the new car, as he takes over from his team-mate for the final two days of this test.
