Scuderia Toro Rosso's 2008 test programme came to an end today andas on the past two days, the team set the fastest lap time: a good way toend the year, even if it is not particularly significant, given the variousdifferent car configurations run by all the teams present in Jerez.More importantly, the cars ran trouble-free throughout the day, allowingboth drivers to complete their programmes, which in the morning focusedon performance, while the afternoon's work centred on long runs. In boththese cases, the drivers were tasked with finding a good set-up on the'09 slick tyres. In addition, Buemi did some work on the braking system.
"I am pleased with the way these three days of testing have gone," saidBuemi, the only Toro Rosso driver to take to the track on all three days."We have got through a lot of work, with a minimum of interruptions.Setting up the car to work with slick tyres and with reduced downforcewas very interesting and it was also good for me to try the rain tyres onthe first day. We have learnt a lot and acquired plenty of data whichshould be useful for the team for next season."
