Well last season it was a problem for me though I think I did improve from the middle of the season to the end. I don't think this year I've had so many problems on Saturday. At least with myself: in Shanghai I did get a problem, something wrong on the car, so that was the reason.
The Toro Rosso
car seems to have potential, seems to have pace. If you can unlock it, then is another weekend like the team had in China possible here in Bahrain?
Everything is possible! Last year Daniel did P6 in qualifying. The pace he had in qualifying in Shanghai shows we've made a step forward in the race, even though I had a big hole in my floor, I had the same pace as him who finished seventh, so you know everything is really encouraging and hopefully for this weekend we can, I mean once more at least for my car, get everything correct and be in the front. So, two cars in the front would be possible and that will be the target.
Charles, an interesting development at Caterham this week. Heikki Kovalainen
comes back as a Friday driver to the team. Do you welcome his return and his input that he can give yourself and Giedo?
Yes, of course I welcome him. I think it's always good to have his advice, he's got a lot of experience so I'm sure he can give us some interesting feedback.
Something that the team feel is desperately needed at the moment? Some experience just to see how good or how bad the car actually is.
I think after the first three races, for sure, we are not happy with where we are at the moment and updates are coming for this race… so it will be quite interesting to see how the car reacts here. We need to progress here.
And these upgrades you feel will help you take the fight to Marussia? You should be on level terms with them?
Yes, of course. It's always really hard to tell what the upgrades will do before running them but normally they should bring something and our job will be to try to optimise the car around them this weekend and get out one hundred percent of the speed on Saturday and Sunday.
