Toro Rosso youngster Carlos Sainz says he was encouraged by the number of laps the squad was able to complete on the third day of testing at Jerez.

Sainz lapped Jerez 137 times - only Mercedes' Nico Rosberg managed more - and posted the sixth quickest time in the STR10.

"It’s been a really nice day for me and I enjoyed what I consider my first real day of Formula 1 testing," he said.

"Hitting a target of 137 laps was quite an achievement. The fact we managed to do such a big distance is down to all the hard work of everyone in the team, the mechanics working day and night here at the track and also everyone back in the factory.

"They did a brilliant job and, thanks to them, I was able to learn a lot.

"All these laps also meant I was able to evaluate my physical condition and, on this front, I am quite pleased, as it seems the work we did over the winter has paid off."
