Ricciardo expecting to stay with Toro Rosso in 2013 3 August, 2012 Aug.3 (GMM) The stream of Formula One news may be running thin as the sport races into its August slumber and factory shutdowns, but the roar of V8 F1 engines has continued this week, with Daniel Ricciardo in action over two days, as Toro Rosso completes some testing for filming purposes at Imola. “The summer break begins when we’re done,” Australian Ricciardo told the German website motorsport-total.com. He insisted that he feels that he doesn’t need a holiday. “It wouldn’t bother me if we were on the way to another grand prix,” said Ricciardo, who made his debut last year with HRT. The 22-year-old admitted he expects to stay at Toro Rosso in 2013. “I’d say so, unless the next few races go very badly,” Ricciardo smiled. “Qualifying has been okay for me, the races a bit more up and down, but if I can knock out a few good races and stay strong in qualifying, I think honestly I’ve done everything I can do.” Subbed by AJN.

AlonsoFan massive drop of points for STR they are nowhere near as good as they were in 2011 with Algesuari nd Buemi.both were way better than Ricarrdo nd vergne. Psych4191 @AlonsoFan actually both of them are worse. The equipment that Buemi/Jaime had was tons better than what Vergne and Ricciardo have. Vergne/Ricciardo is way better than Buemi/Jaime.
