German Grand Prix : 14th despite a puncture
Started from 15th position on the grid, Jean-Eric Vergne crossed the finish line of the German Grand Prix in 14th. On the good pace at the beginning of the race, the Frenchman would certainly have done better without a puncture early in the race, which forced him to make an early stop. One more time, the Toro Rosso driver did a strong race today.
“I am at the same time disappointed and happy at the end of this race: happy because the performance was quite good and disappointed as we were unlucky to have a puncture, which meant I had to make a very early stop which ruined the race” explained Jean-Eric Vergne.
“Actually I had a bad start, dropping to 20th but still, I managed to cross the line 13th at the end of the first lap. The car was running well enough to get a better result. The car definitely seems to be working better than it did in the last few Grands Prix, so that gives us hope that we can improve still further at the next race. We only have a few days to go till Hungary where I have usually gone well in the other formulae, but this is Formula 1, so we will have to wait and see.”
See you next week in Hungary, for the last race before the summer race.
