Jean-Eric Vergne is intent on building on his points-scoring finish in Malaysia with an improved performance next weekend in China.
After narrowly missing out on a top-eight finish on his debut at Albert Park, the Toro Rosso rookie impressed in the rain of Sepang as he clinched eighth place to garner his first World Championship points in F1. And now he wants more.
"Getting my first points in F1 feels great," he told the official Toro Rosso website.
"I'm eager to go to Shanghai and have another go. I think I've made a couple of mistakes in the first two races, so I'm keen to get to China and be stronger."
The Frenchman has been busy at work in the Toro Rosso simulator since Malaysia and remains confident that, in the STR7, he has a car capable of delivering more success.
"We've done two races now and scored some points. I think what we come away with from those first two flyaways is a belief that the car is good. As the season goes on everyone will have a programme of development but it's good to have a solid basis on which to work. I'm confident we can have more good results and get even stronger."
