Four points, and a fantastic race.
The Korean Grand Prix 2012 will certainly be a reference race for Jean-Eric Vergne. With an efficient Toro Rosso, the Frenchman convinced with his pace and his ability to preserve his tires. After several overtaking, JEV finished eighth, just ahead of his teammate and scored four extra points.
“I am really really happy, as this was definitely my best race of the year” said a joyful JEV. “The car worked well with very little tyre degradation on both the Prime and the Option. I did not take too many risks at the start and I had a nice fight with Perez in the early stages and then with Di Resta and also Hamilton.”
“Dan and I were on different strategies and both seemed to be effective. Towards the end, I was told that my team-mate had a problem, but overall for the team, to get eighth and ninth with Daniel also driving a great race is a fantastic result.”
“Everyone in the team worked very hard on improving the car throughout the weekend. In general, we seem to be making progress and this track seemed to suit us well, which I think we can also expect to be the case in India.”
“The best part of the race? Seeing the chequered flag in the points!”
