Franz Tost, the boss of the Formula One outfit Toro Rosso has stated that driver Jean Eric Vergne needs one huge result under his belt in order to validate the progress he has already made this season.
Vergne lost out to last season’s team mate, Australian Daniel Ricciardo for promotion to sister team Red Bull Racing and has spent most of this season to become the team’s number one driver with rookie phenomenon Daniil Kvyat.
And although Tost conceded that reliability issues with the car hampered the team’s drivers from scoring big points for the team in a couple of races, with a couple of eight pointers standing out as the best result for Vergne, he reckons that this is potentially a huge season for him who is now competing in his third Formula One season with Toro Rosso.
Tost stated that Vergne made a lot of progress, particularly during the winter months and hence, his mental stability is a lot better than in previous seasons during the races. Tost mentioned that he is doing a great job, but unfortunately for him, there have been some issues with the reliability of the car but in terms of driving, he is fast, skilful and Tost just hopes he can manage a huge result between now and the end of the season.
Vergne was running at sixth in the Monaco Grand Prix before suffering from technical problems with an unsafe release as well as ignition issues and Tost added a good result there would have added a lot to his self-confidence and given him the kick to go on and score more point.
But Tost is also certain that Jean Eric Vergne will eventually come good for himself as well as for the Toro Rosso and show what he is actually capable of.
