Sixty laps to begin
As usual, the Friday was studious for Jean-Eric Vergne and Toro Rosso. The Frenchman did a serious working program in Monza. Eighteenth of the first session, nineteenth of the second, JEV and his team will work to improve their performance level before the qualifying session, Saturday at 14:00.
“This is my first time at Monza in a Formula 1 car and it definitely feels fast!” said Jean-Eric. “I have been getting used to running with very little downforce and we still have some work to do to try and improve our performance level.”
“The team did a good job today in terms of working through a packed test programme and now it’s a case of studying the data, trying to work out the best car set-up for qualifying and for the race.”
“I have to say that driving for an Italian team at Monza in front of such a big crowd, including many of our people from the factory added something special to the experience.”
