Franz Tost: I am very pleased with the performances of ElbonApril 19, 2019
Toro Rosso CEO Franz Tost praised Alexander Elbon for his excellent performance in China after the Saturday crash. Then the mechanics had to collect the car in the spare chassis, Elbon started from the pit lane, but earned points.
Franz Tost: “Alexander had a great race in China, I am very pleased with his performance. Weekend was not without mistakes, but in the race he fought and overtook. I saw in training that he would be competitive in the race – on Friday he showed an excellent pace on long runs and was quick on Saturday morning. Unfortunately, he had an accident.
Before the start, I told him: “Act aggressively.” Anyone who starts from the pit lane, nothing to lose. We put him a Soft bus so that he could recoup. We had two strategy options. First, we planned two stops in the boxes, but on soft tires, everything went so well that we decided to limit one. I’m happy for the team – Elbon was able to earn points.
He damaged the chassis in training – the mechanics had a lot of work, because they had to assemble a new car. It’s great that their efforts are rewarded with points. As for the damaged power plant, it is not yet clear whether we can use some of its elements during the course of the season – a solution for Honda.
Usually our car is competitive in racing. We earned points in all three Grand prix, and if we start to better perform in qualifications, then we will strive for better results than the ninth or tenth places. We have a fast car, excellent racers – this year we have to earn a lot of points. ”
