Неоднозначные результаты тренировок для Toro Rosso

The results of Friday’s training for pilots Toro Rosso is ambiguous: went Out looked hard enough, but Hartley was suffering from problems with balance and was only surpassed by the accident of Hulkenberg…Pierre went Out (12th): “I like coming to this track, great to be here for the second time.. a Productive day. Between sessions we made some changes and they were effective enough, though on balance remains to be addressed.We are close to the top ten, but if we will work well in the evening, further reduce the backlog. Here we have a chance for a good result, but you need to put it all together”.Brendon Hartley (19th): “it’s Great to return to Interlagos! While we are not as competitive as we would like, but on balance there was some difficulty. You need to work with the engineers tonight to Saturday to add”.Jonathan Eddolls, chief race engineer “a Productive day, everything went as planned, without any problems. We brought a new aerodynamics for both vehicles, and she showed very well – a positive sign.In the first session the main task was to conduct wind tunnel tests for future work. The track was very dirty with low grip level. From the point of view of balance in the first session both cars suffered from understeer, and although we tried to do something before the end of the session, a good balance was not achieved.Based on what we saw this morning, in the second exercise we have chosen the optimum configuration and planned the usual comparison of tires for a short series, before switching to long. Red flags have endangered both of our first series. Well, with all right – the accident looked quite serious.In the second training session we improved the balance. On short series, we look good, and long is not so good – need to find the cause. We’ll work on it tonight and try to find a better compromise between qualifying and race pace.On Friday, the track temperature was much lower than we expected on a Sunday, so you need to be careful with the use of the information gathered in the race when temperatures rise”.Toyoharu Tanabe, technical Director of Honda F1: “From the point of view of the power plants during the three hours of training, everything went smoothly. Between sessions, the team improved the balance, allowing the pier to be among the 12 best in the second session. This is encouraging for tomorrow, but there is an ambiguity with the weather forecast for Saturday, so the key to a good result will be a flexible strategy in qualifying”.
