Kvyat: “you have to try everything twice before you leave”


After the positive debut of Carlos Sainz at the wheel of the Toro Rosso STR12, the second day of tests has passed on a good path for the formation of Faenza. Although the team has been forced to losing a couple of hours to perform various checks techniques in the single-seater, the training has been able to complete the rest of the day with no reliability issues.

, or at least that is what you can see

position STR12 respect to their direct rivals, the Russian pilot has
shown more concise when it comes to evaluating the new Renault engine: is Not

other computers because the entire world is working with set-up of the engine
