Toro Rosso have revealed their STR5 – the first car to be built by the Faenza-based team since it operated as Minardi.

The first picture of the car shows it has a lot of similarities with last year’s STR4 – the high nose and shark fin have been retained. More pictures of the STR5 below.

    Rumours on JA on F1 about the STR lacking downforce, but that is a fairley radical front wing.

  2. I like it. The nose and the shark fin are beautifully scultured. I hope Buemi (and Jaime) can get some better results. After all Vettel was able to get a win for them…

    Livery looks closer to the superior 2008scheme but still way too similar to the main Red Bull one (if they keep theirs similar too).

  4. Not seeing the Repsol sponsorship that people had said Jaime was supposed to have brought to the team this year.

    u can’t see it in any of these pics, but on there’s a pic that shows the exhaust directly beneath one of the rear suspension arms (sorry i don’t know the technical name for it) wouldn’t the heat from the exhaust be a bit of a concern? could it have the potential to weaken the structure? just curious…they are the experts so perhaps not…

  6. i dont know why redbull needed 2 f1 teams.. hope they sell it someone in the future.
