The head of Toro Rosso Franz Toast believes that the team from Faenza in the upcoming season on forces to compete for the title of best in the middle group of the peloton.
Despite the problems with the Renault engine for the first pre-season tests, Daniil Kvyat and Carlos Sainz was satisfied with the work gear.
“We don’t know how many fuel have worked all the other teams, but I’m optimistic and believe that Toro Rosso will be at the head of the middle group, – quotes AUTOSPORT Toast. – As for impressions from the machine on the tests this week, it looks good and seems fast, and the drivers doing a great job.
If appliances will not have problems, I am confident that we will achieve our goals”.
Technical Director Toro Rosso James Key expects in the upcoming season struggle in the middle group of teams will be especially tight.
“I think Haas overcame quite well,’ answered the Key question of who is the main competitor of STR. – See how events will unfold next week and in Melbourne. But they did a good job.
Renault might be close to Haas, we’ll see. Compared to last year they look more competitive.”
To the question why he did not mention McLaren and Sauber, Kee said: “This does not mean disrespect to them. You just asked to determine exactly who will look good… I don’t think at this stage, the same can be said about these two teams.
McLaren, like us, faced problems this week. Obviously, they were not able to complete the entire program. To comment on the situation is not easy, but things are changing very quickly.”
