Yesterday Franz Toast refuted the statements Abimbola, and on Saturday the Italian team released an official statement on the matter.
“Regarding the recent allegations made by the team producer, Toro Rosso wants to clarify the situation regarding power plants, said in a statement the team from Faenza. – For us it was a surprise that Cyril Abitbul in communication with the mass media suggested that the problems experienced by Toro Rosso with the power plant associated, primarily, with the activities of our team, namely with the way the power unit cooperates with the chassis STR12.
However, our work on the installation of the unit is not varied during the season-2017 with the exception of improvements in the cooling system, which we achieved in mid-year. Since the summer break on machines Toro Rosso was constantly having malfunctions with the operation of the power plant, which led to penalties on the starting grid and cost the team points in the constructors ‘ championship.
We see the cause of the problems in shortage of spare elements of the power plant. We are constantly forced to re-install items from one unit to another in the course of the weekend, and sometimes forced at all to use the old specification.
Only two of the six machines manufacturer finished the race in Mexico, which underscores the depressing situation with the reliability of engines.
Do not forget that they [Renault] are fighting with Toro Rosso for position in the Cup of designers. As suggested by Mr. Abitbul, this situation is not accidental, but it is absolutely nothing to do with the car STR”.
