Toro Rosso Friday practice reports 2011 Belgian GP

Jaime Alguersuari: “It’s always nice to come to Spa, a track that all the drivers like as it’s a great feeling pushing the car to the limit here. Of course the changeable weather made life difficult, but we still got through a lot of work and acquired plenty of data to look at tonight. The car feels fast and I am sure there is more to come, as we did not run the softer, faster tyre in the dry today. I enjoy driving in the wet, even if it can make life complicated in the race. But, for ourselves, these types of unpredictable race can often be the ones where we get a good result. I am optimistic for the rest of the weekend and my aim will be to push hard and get in the points again on Sunday.”

Sebastien Buemi: “I think this was a good day overall, as we were able to run in the wet, which is actually nearly always the case in Spa and also got a bit of dry track time. We ran the Medium slick which will be important for the race, although I did not drive on the Soft. As for some new elements we had on the car here, of course it is always difficult to assess on a wet track. So we still have a lot to do before tomorrow and the engineers will have to do their best overnight to analyse the data and decide which parts worked well. The forecast for tomorrow is for more rain, but with a dry Sunday predicted, choosing the right car set-up for tomorrow will not be an easy choice. Whatever the weather, driving at Spa is always a great experience and at least we got a little bit of time in the dry, which is always better in terms of getting a feeling for how the car is behaving.”
