“In a collision are to blame, Cheko. It is wrong to behave on the track, said Tost in an interview AUTOSPORT.com. – Look at the consequences: on Kvyat’s car destroyed the side pontoon, but Perez suffered a punctured left front tyre.
This is nothing to discuss – it is 100% the fault of Perez. So it is impossible to fly. Prior to this incident, both of our cars were in the top ten. Throughout the weekend STR12 was competitive and Carlos did a marvelous job, to defend his sixth place. Daniel also went well, but Perez knocked him out of the fight”.
Franz was pleased with the result in Monte Carlo, but he realizes that on tracks with long straight where top speed, the Italian team will be not so successful.
“We will have a hard time in Canada and Azerbaijan, but engineers are working flat-out to find the optimal settings that would allow pilots to get into the points zone at these stages, continued the Toast. Renault is continually upgrading its powerplant. Will see what happens the next race.
We occupy the fifth place in the constructors ‘ championship, ahead of Williams by nine points. We want to maintain this position. It is our goal”.
