“I will never forget today. I finally got behind the wheel of a Formula 1 car, this is the dream of every racer and Toro Rosso made this moment even more special. Just an amazing feeling! he Gelala the press service of the Toro Rosso. Machine this year – just a real beast, so she’s fast.
I felt comfortable driving all day, we managed to achieve good progress.
I drove a lot of laps and quickly got used to the car. Engine power and traction is incredible. The difference in grip under braking and when you attack the curbs compared to the F2 car is the biggest that I have ever seen.
Have to admit that piloting a real pleasure. I want to say thanks to all those who made it possible. Looking forward to returning behind the wheel of a STR on tests at the Hungaroring in a few months.”
