Summer in the rain ...
It was raining today at Spa-Francorchamps. During the first free practice session, Jean-Eric Vergne did 15 laps and set the fourth time. In the afternoon, the conditions were worst than in the morning. The Toro Rosso driver did only three laps. The sun is expected from tomorrow in the Belgian Ardennes.
“This morning, as is usually the case in the rain, the car performed very well on the Extreme tyres” explained Jean-Eric.
“There were no problems and our lap t mes for me and Daniel were respectable. However, this afternoon, the rain was really too heavy to do anything worthwhile, so we only went out right at the end to do a practice start off the grid.”
