As Formula 1 prepares for a season with fewer penalty-free engine parts, Franz Tost admits it could be a “headache” for Toro Rosso and new engine partner Honda.
McLaren will unveil their 2018 Renault-powered MCL33 on February 23 with Toro Rosso’s STR13 breaking covers two days later.
Pierre Gasly is hoping Honda come out of the starting blocks with a reliable engine as the teams have just eight days of pre-season testing in order to get up to speed for 2018.
Pierre Gasly believes his Toro Rosso drive is proof that drivers can enter Formula 1 without massive financial backing.
Toro Rosso driver Brendon Hartley has ruled out competing in other motorsport categories this season, saying he will solely focus on Formula 1.
