The second and final day of this, the third in-season test session went well for Scuderia Toro Rosso, with the team working through pretty much its entire programme. Daniil Kvyat was at the wheel of the STR9 and began the day with some aero measurement runs. He also did some tyre work, getting in three runs on the Medium and Soft compound Pirelli tyres. In the afternoon, the programme switched to evaluating changes to the mechanical set-up and our Russian driver ended the test doing some runs with a high fuel load.
Next item on the agenda for Scuderia Toro Rosso and the ten other Formula 1 teams, is the tenth round of the World Championship, the German Grand Prix at Hockenheim from 18 to 20 July.
Daniil Kvyat: “I felt this was a very productive day, ticking a lot of boxes on our programme. Personally, I found it very useful and learned a lot. The tyre management tests in the morning were particularly useful. Now we can look at all the data we gathered here and I think some of it could already be useful from the next race in Germany. It’s a shame that a red flag towards the end of the session meant we didn’t complete everything on our agenda, but it was still a good day.”
