Toro Rosso STR8 launch: First pictures

2013 F1 cars

The Toro Rosso STR8 is ready for the start of testing ahead of the 2013 season.

The STR8 is the first car designed by the team’s new technical department heads James Key and Luca Furbatto.

Team principal Franz Tost says he expects the team to finish sixth in the constructors’ championship this year.

Daniel Ricciardo and Jean-Eric Vergne remain to drive the latest car from Red Bull’s junior team, who ended last year in ninth place.

    I know I say this every year, but I wish they would adopt the red bull light colours, that way it would look less of red bull’s b team. It is probably that red bull and red bull light are rival companies like with coca cola, but even so.

    keith, those pictures of the rear end are brilliant, the lighting and quality of the image makes it realy interesting to see the suspension and aero detailing. more pics like this!!!

    This car, despite it’s usual colour scheme, looks great, particularly the front end. Sharp and aggressive. IMO the Mercedes is by far the worst looking car with the worst livery – I don’t know what it is about it, I just can’t stand looking at it. It looks ‘cheap’.

    On a separate note, I love seeing Ricciardo in photos…always looks pumped to be in F1. Biggest smile ever. JEV not bothered.

    I like the hawk beak or protruding nail look of the hose and how thin it is.
