Pierre Gasli: I hope, tomorrow it is going to rain!


In Toro Rosso have productively worked on Friday, but we are dissatisfied with the speed of the car and expect to add on Saturday...

Pierre Gasli (15th): "Quiet day though we waited for problems - this route doesn't suit our car. We have tried to use as much as possible what we have. Still the car behaved not bad, but some of our rivals were fast already today, and we should work seriously better to act tomorrow. I hope, it is going to rain - then it will become even more interesting! "

Brendon Hartley (17th): "After a summer break it is exciting to pass the first circles in Spa driving the Formula 1. The turn Eau Rouge at a full speed on the couple first circles has forced me to wake up.

Quiet day, without mechanical problems. Now everything should be analysed, but there is a feeling that both cars lack speed. It is necessary to make something in the evening, but ahead group of teams with very dense results".

Johnathan Eddolls, chief racing engineer: "It is exciting to return on the route after a two-week break, the route to Spa - the excellent place to start the second half of a season! It is the fantastic route with unpredictable weather, the race can turn out very interesting - and in her we can have chances. The forecast promised rather high probability of a rain, but it was without any precipitations - both sessions have taken place quietly.

After successful tests in Hungary at us has arisen several curious ideas concerning settings - we have devoted to this work the most part of the first training, having divided the program between two racers. Brendon tested generally aerodynamics, and Pierre - mechanical settings. Results met expectations, characteristics of the route don't suit our car. For a session we have analysed all data and have picked up the best settings for both cars. the Second training has taken place

as usual: at first we have passed several short series, then - long series. In cool conditions it was very difficult to warm up tires Medium, but both racers are happy with balance of the car on SuperSoft rubber. Time on a circle didn't meet our expectations, and in the second training we were less competitive - it is necessary to find out what has occurred".

to Toyokhar Tanabe, technical director of Honda F1: "Today promised rains, but both sessions have taken place in dry conditions and without problems so we have executed the planned program of work with the power plant. We have tried to optimize the engine. The forecast for tomorrow again promises a rain so in the next two days it is necessary to be ready to any succession of events".
