STRSebastien Bourdais took over today the STR3 from Sebastian Vettel for day 2 of tests at Paul Ricard circuit in France. Testing continued at the short version of the circuit to simulate Monaco’s conditions and Bourdais spent the morning acclimatising to the new car as well as running a tyre comparison between the two types that Bridgestone will provide in Monaco and Montreal.

Later in the morning, the Frenchman began a race simulation which was successfully completed in the afternoon. Also on the day’s agenda, some of usual tasks with any new car – systems checking and calibration.

Tomorrow, the action stays at Le Catsellet but switches to another version of the circuit to simulate some aspects of the Gilles Villeneuve circuit in Canada. This will be the first time both Toro Rosso drivers try STR3 in low downforce configuration as Vettel runs in the morning and Bourdais in the afternoon.
