Hungarian GP practice reactions: Scuderia Toro Rosso

Scuderia Toro Rosso reacts to the opening day of running for the Hungarian Grand Prix.


Sebastien Buemi - 19th:

"We have the new package on the car here, but it's not a magic trick, where you put something on the car and go a lot faster immediately. At the moment, we are trying to understand what it does in terms of car balance. It is definitely better and now our task is to get the most out of it. In between sessions there is not enough time to go in depth into the data, so this evening we will get a better picture. Generally, it has been a positive day and I think we can have a degree of confidence for qualifying. Having a new team-mate does not affect me that much as I drive my car on my own! The team seems happy and he produced a good performance."


Jaime Alguersuari - 20th:

"I am quite happy with how today has gone, especially this morning, when I had a good pace and felt quite confident. In the second session, my lap time could have been better, but I didn't get a clean lap on the option tyre. I am learning all the time. The hardest part was the entry into the high speed corners, which I need to take much faster, but that will come as my confidence grows and I do more kilometres. Every time I went out from the garage, I was learning and felt more comfortable with the situation."


Franz Tost – team principal:

"Jaime did a very good job in his first day of practice in Formula 1. He completed a total of 82 laps without making any mistakes. With every lap, he got more used to the car, to working with his engineers and to the general environment. Overall, it's been a good preparation for tomorrow's qualifying and for the race. A fantastic job so far."
