Toro Rosso driver Jean Eric Vergne believes drivers will get used to the required style of driving the all new V6 turbo Formula 1 cars, including the matter of fuel management during a race.

Vergne told reporters in Sepang, “They [the new F1 cars] might be a little bit more complicated to drive with so many parameters to control, but in pure driving terms there’s not much difference.”

As for the fuel management requirements, Vergne explained, “As a driver, you are not so involved in this. It is mainly down to the engineers, but here at this Sepang track, fuel management will be much easier than at Albert Park, which is much harder on fuel use.” (GP247)
