Jean-Eric Vergne has praised his Toro Rosso team for the 'massively good job' they did across the winter period.

Vergne finished in eight place in Australia and has progressed through to the top 10 shootout in both races this season. Team-mate Daniil Kvyat has finished in the points in both races.

"I think Toro Rosso has done a massively good job during the winter and even before that, produced a good car and I believe there is still a lot more to come from this team," he said ahead of this weekend's Bahrain Grand Prix.

"Many things have changed in a good way and you can definitely feel it inside the team and I’m really happy, they’ve showed some really good results. I think if I didn’t have a problem, I think we could have finished again in the points, a double points finish in Malaysia as well, and that’s what we’re going to try and do here in Bahrain. But overall, I think it’s a good start but the good thing is that I’m sure there is a lot more to come."

Vergne also said that he had changed his approach as a racer ahead of the 2014 season.

"I’ve changed many things, I would say," he revealed. "I will not go into much detail but I needed to change my approach a little bit and I think the changes that I’ve made have been in the right direction.

"I feel better as a human being and as a racing driver as well, and enjoying more of what I do; I can see that already inside the team, outside the track and on the track. As for the team, I think I still have a lot more to give, so it’s all positive so far."
