Jody Egginton: “Interesting race”

Published on 31 October 2015 by Johan Peeters

Jody Egginton, Head of Vehicle Performance of Scuderia Toro Rosso, says after the Saturday in Mexico: “Some good work from the guys last night meant that we could run a full program with Max today and allow him to catch-up the time he lost yesterday. Both cars completed a good FP3 program this morning and covered the final parts of our race and qualifying preparations.”

“In Qualifying 1 both cars were evenly matched. Carlos was unlucky not to make it through into Q3, he was very close! Max on the other hand got through what was a very close Q2.”

“Unfortunately on his second run in Q3 he locked-up into Turn 1 and flat-spotted his tyre on what should have been his quickest lap, but a P8 is a fair result, we can be happy with that and now focus on what will definitely be an interesting race tomorrow.”
