F1 British Grand Prix: Vergne found his ‘aggressiveness’ again

Jean-Eric Vergne says he “found again the aggressiveness I knew I had” as he climbed through the field in the British Grand Prix
Jean-Eric Vergne says he “found again the aggressiveness I knew I had” as he climbed through the field in the British Grand Prix.

After a disappointing weekend in Austria, Toro Rosso bounced back with a double-points finish as Vergne finished tenth behind team-mate Daniil Kvyat. However, Vergne had to climb through the field during the race after a collision with Sergio Perez on the opening lap and he said he was back to his best as he fought to make up ground.

“A strong race for the whole team, to have two cars in the points is certainly a good result and we all needed a positive outcome,” Vergne said. “I'm happy with my race. Starting from the back of the grid after the red flag and overtaking the cars in front of me was actually good fun. I think I have found again the aggressiveness I knew I had and it's certainly a boost for my self-confidence. I can't wait to be back in the car for the next race."

Kvyat was also pleased with his performance, although rued running out of laps to take eighth place from Nico Hulkenberg.

“This was a very intense race, especially towards the end when I was pushing to catch Hulkenberg,” Kvyat said. “I was actually quicker than him and I was definitely getting very close, but unfortunately I was not able to pass him in the end.

“Overall, I am quite happy with this race weekend and I very much enjoyed driving this track with its high speed corners. And after having had a few difficult races, it is great to see that all the hard work has paid off and that we were able to get both cars into the points.”
