Toro Rosso drivers Daniel Ricciardo and Jean-Éric Vergne believe wet conditions for tomorrow’s British Grand Prix will be their best chance for a strong finish and despite a promising start to Qualifying, they will start the race in 14th and 16th positions respectively.
Vergne was running as high as fourth before the red flag period but still belives that the decision by the FIA was the correct one.
“It could have been a really good qualifying and it had been going well up until the red flag. I was fourth at the time,” explained the Frenchman. “The red flag was definitely the right decision as there was too much water for the tyres to clear.”
His Australian team-mate Daniel Ricciardo is pinning his hopes on more rain for tomorrow’s race, believing the team will run better in these challenging conditions.
“As I said on Friday, if we have a wet race, which seems likely, I think we can do well tomorrow,” said Ricciardo. “The car seems to work well in the wet, but starting in the midfield there will be a lot of spray to contend with, so there are pros and cons to racing in the rain.”
The Italian team won their one and only race when Sebastian Vettel won the Grand Prix at Monza in similarly appalling conditions.
