Toro Rosso preview the Italian GP

Daniil Kvyat is looking forward to return to Monza, where's won several races in other classes, while Jean-Eric Vergne enjoys driving in front of the tifosi...

Daniil Kvyat: "I really like Monza and it's been an important circuit for me, as I have taken some major wins and podium finishes there. Last year was particularly good, when I won Race 1 in the GP3 category and then came second in Race 2 in which they reverse the grid order for the front runners. It's a very challenging track, especially for the rookie drivers, as it a very high speed and demanding circuit. I have always enjoyed driving it in the junior formulas and I hope it will still be the case in the Formula 1 car this year. I have spent a lot of my life in Italy, so it's going to be cool to be in a familiar atmosphere. Of course, it's also Toro Rosso's home race, which will make what is always a highlight of the F1 calendar even more special."

Jean-Eric Vergne: "It's the home race for us at Toro Rosso and I'm really looking forward to the weekend, because it's always great to perform in front of the tifosi, who really make this Grand Prix special. I think it might be a difficult race for us, as it is very much a power track where you need to be flying down the straights, which is maybe not our biggest strength this year. We will still be doing our best to have a good home race. I love the atmosphere here and I have good memories of when I won here in World Series. Last year's race was quite unfortunate for me, but I hope we can have a strong race this time."
