Toro Rosso 'more competitive' in Texas

Vergne concurred: "The car feels good, there are plenty of overtaking opportunities here, so my plan tomorrow is to go hunting for some more points," he said.

"Our starting position certainly does not rule us out of fighting for points," agreed Mekies. As to whether the team would go along with the expected trend for a single pit stop approach to the race, Mekies was hedging his bets

"Although it is the most likely scenario, a one-stop strategy is not inevitable - because no one has that much long run data from Friday and we have never raced here before," he pointed out. "All the teams spent a lot of time working out how to get the best out of the medium Pirellis in qualifying trim and maybe a bit less time thinking about the race, which could make for an interesting afternoon!"
