Toro Rosso STR12 No Longer Looks Like A Red Bull

Alyssa BaileyFeb 28, 2017

Toro Rosso were the last team to unveil their new auto, the STR12, at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya on the eve of pre-season testing.

"We really like the first major livery change of our 12 years on the F1 grid and this new look is reflected in our pit garage, which has also been updated to make life easier while working around these much larger cars".

The bodywork is tightly packaged around the sidepods and the rear, but the auto retains a large airbox intake similar to the one on last year's Ferrari-powered vehicle.

Red Bull-owned Toro Rosso are still open to re-branding their Renault engines this season if they can find a suitable partner, said team principal Franz Tost.

"Daniil Kvyat will be in his fourth year as a Formula One driver and Carlos Sainz will now tackle his third season with us".

The metallic silver and blue auto introduces a new look, with the previous one being painted red, dark blue and gold, in the team's first major livery change in 12 years.

Renault, ninth last year with Toro Rosso seventh while using a year-old Ferrari engine, set the same goal at their launch on Tuesday. The two teams are the only ones to pursue a design with a slender nose and raised front suspension, whereby the upper wishbone is linked to the front uprights by a small bracket.

"If the vehicle is as fast as it looks, then I am more than happy", said Tost. "Most people will say we've got Mercedes" front suspension.

"The nose is similar, the front of the side pods is similar, even the bodywork of the side pods is similar.let's just hope the engines are similar", he added. "There's many different concepts out there, actually".

"I end the day with a positive feeling after my first outing at the wheel of the STR12", he said.

"The good news is that, a part from the usual first-day glitches, nothing has caught us out and everything behaves in the way we think it should".
