Jean-Eric Vergne, who drove under the colors of Sodi, coming off his first sensations at the steering-wheel of a Formula 1 during a weekend of racing at Yeongam, South Korea.
Thirteenth time of the first practice in rainy conditions, Jean-Eric was satisfied with his first trial run with the Toro Rosso 2011.
Even if he made only nine laps:
"It was the first time I took the steering-wheel of the car today, during the first free practice session. The last time I drove a Toro Rosso, it was last year during private testing for young drivers in Abu Dhabi. I must admit that I was not so happy this morning when I opened the curtains and saw the rain. I found the morning session was quite difficult due to climatic conditions, even though I'm glad I did because I have not crashed the car and I also have enjoyed [...] no matter about the track conditions, I am happy to have this opportunity, although I have not traveled a lot of laps. That means I'll be better prepared when I get back on track in Abu Dhabi. "
JEV renew this experience at the upcoming Grand Prix of Abu Dhabi and Brazil and hopes to be in the cockpit of one of the two cars next season ... and we too!
GO JEV !
