Toro Rosso preview the Chinese GP

While Jean-Eric Vergne is eager for the "challenge" of the Shanghai circuit, Daniil Kvyat is hoping to put what he learnt in testing to good use...


Jean-Eric Vergne: "A very interesting circuit with a wide variety of corners and a really long straight that provides great opportunities for overtaking. Doing a qualifying lap here is great fun, dealing with challenges like turn 1, which you approach flat, before the corner just goes on and on. It means it is also demanding on tyres and from a driver's point of view, it is one of the better ones to drive. However, it's a shame the circuit is so far away from the city, because we never really get any time to visit what is a fascinating place. So it's a case of just getting to the track, doing the race and going home."

Daniil Kvyat: "I've never been to China, so I am interested to discover something about this country and also the circuit. I've watched lots of Shanghai Formula One races on TV to get an idea of the track and after Bahrain I was also able to drive it on the simulator. I was disappointed to finish just outside the points at the last race and, after learning a lot about the car at the post-Bahrain test, I hope we can aim for another top ten fnish this weekend, on what looks like a really challenging track. Away from the circuit, I've heard the Chinese fans are very welcoming. I will be interested to try Chinese food too!"
