Carlos Sainz believes that the beginning of the Grand Prix of China Toro Rosso should be able to solve problems with machine control STR12.
The Spaniard admitted that the GP of Australia in Melbourne he had no confidence in the car, despite the fact that he finished a worthy eighth place while his team mate Daniil Kvyat was ninth.
“A race, – quotes AUTOSPORT.com Sainz. – After the pit stop we returned to the track ahead of Perez, but he later overtook us on the straight. When the car power is not enough to defend the position is very difficult.
Then I had to skip ahead of Daniel because I was told to do so, although he still had to go to the second pit stop. I think we missed seventh place”.
The Spaniard added: “to be honest, I’m in Melbourne only on Friday felt 100% comfortable to STR12.
I wasn’t sure in the car, so couldn’t make the most of it. Obviously we have problems with balance. I hope we will solve it to China.”
In addition, science believes that in 2017 the Toro Rosso was able to compete for fifth place in the constructors ‘ championship.
“In Australia, Williams has revealed that she is a step ahead in the field of race pace – continued the Spaniard. – As for Haas, I don’t know, as if they were driving on the Soft or Ultrasoft. Perhaps they were faster by 0.1 seconds from the circle. Then go we.
I really believe that we are faster Force India, but in Melbourne they were smarter than us, go in for a pit stop before.”
