Toast: In the 2019th we wait for significant growth of results


Toro Rosso finished a season on the ninth line in the Constructors championship - is much lower than own expectations. The head of team Franz Tost summed up the results, told what did not allow to achieve bigger, and spoke about plans for the 2019th.

Question: On the course of a season of Toro Rosso became some kind of proving ground for Honda and Red Bull with a view to the next year. You are happy how there passed year?

Franz Tost: On the season course we alternated rises to recessions. The team held several good races - the fourth place in Bahrain, the Monaco's seventh and sixth in Budapest. Unfortunately, there were stages in which we did not score points where we did not accept car speed.

Question: Why there was no stability in results?

Franz Tost: We knew that the season will not be simple. It was obvious that year of an operating time of experience together with Honda is necessary. Besides, we had two inexperienced racers, and we did not upgrade the car such rates on which I counted. Unfortunately, there were also other problems which are not allowing to progress as equals with direct competitors.

Question: As far as you are happy with work of racers?

Franz Tost: Pierre Gasli well coped and constantly progressed. He could score points in Abu Dhabi if not technical problems.

Question: It is completely ready to performances for Red Bull?

Franz Tost: The future will show. It has a good base, and he knows what to do next. He definitely deserves this place, and I am sure that it will well prove in Red Bull.

Question: Brendon Hartley's results were not such high. What it is connected with? With a lack of luck or speed?

Franz Tost: I have nothing to tell. Do not forget that it passed from LMP1, and it is absolutely other racing series. In modern Formula 1 it is necessary to overcome serious calls, especially in work with tires. Brendon progressed on the season course, and it would be quite good if finally it once again scored points.

Question: How do you estimate cooperation with Honda on the season course?

Franz Tost: We perfectly worked, having achieved progress on the season course, as in terms of speed, and reliability. Ahead hard work in off-season. Honda have to make so that next year motors became better. I am quite sure that at them everything will turn out.

Question: Disturbs you that in the 2019th the team will become the ground for tests of motors for Red Bull again?

Franz Tost: It is not a problem as we have to make the car quicker too. If it is necessary and Red Bull will help, then we like such role.

Question: In the 2019th technical cooperation of Toro Rosso with Red Bull will become even more dense. Do you expect that it will lead to growth of results?

Franz Tost: At least, it should be expected. We will get access to all practices of Red Bull Technology which the regulations only allow to receive the maximum benefit from synergy. Cooperation already goes according to the plan
