"We know on our side we have one problem that we have clearly identified and we want to fix it," explained Taffin. "We could not fix it for this morning, so we decided to do as much as we could on our side to make sure that, for tomorrow, and especially for Red Bull and Toro Rosso, that we are sure we can take to the track at 9 a.m. We are confident that tomorrow morning we will have all three cars on track."
