  1. I’m really glad that there are some cars that have got the aesthetics right, regarding the step in the nose. In my opinion, the McLaren still looks the best, but this and the Force India are definitely good-looking as well.

    I’m intrigued by the sizeable undercut that the Toro Rosso has gone with here. Here’s hoping for an even more competitive Formula 1 season.

    Bring on pre-season testing :D

  2. I know that some people are fans of Daniel Riccardo smile, but It reminds me at when I ask my frined 5 year old daughter to smile.

    Is it me of this picture look red…

    1. You’re not alone here, I too am horrified by Ricciardo’s “smile”.

      1. Speaking of, isn´´t it weird that neither Giorgio Ascanelli nor Franz Tost and Giorgio Ascanelli are in the launge…

      2. Ricciardo & Maldonado. A never before seen ‘brace of braces’ in F1.

    2. He’s just very, very, very, very, very happy.
      The other extreme being Raikkonen, as when he says he’s “very happy” he still looks as though he’s at a funeral.

    3. Rather see a happy smile than the arrogant one we see on the champion driver’s face.

  3. One of the best looking cars on the 2012 grid.Just awesome the livery.And the shape of the car is also very nice :) I’m looking forward for first session of testing.

    1. I agree but let’s see how it performs. All this ‘beauty’ is for naught if they can’t bag a podium this season.

      1. A podium? I think you need to get a hold of yourself.

        1. Tell that to Helmut Marko. If they don’t score a podium, we’ll see other ‘potential Vettels’ racing for TR next season.

  4. Great looking car there!

  5. I think if this team was independent rather than Red Bull number 2 it could be a very popular outfit.

    I think the Red Bull connection hurts them that way.

    1. I’d like to remind you that they were Minardi some time ago and constantly on the brink of going bankrupt. I think if anything the Red Bull connection kept them alive.

  6. Another lovely looking car from Toro Rosso. Looks better than the RB8 but I expected it would.

    I think this and the E20 have the best looking stepped noses so far.

  7. Wow! Look at the sidepods on this thing too, the floor is pretty interesting!

    Just catching up with all the car launches as I’ve been away! I’m like a kid in a candy shop!
