Toro Rosso announce pre-test launch

Date published: February 7 2017

Toro Rosso will unveil their 2017 STR12 on the eve of pre-season testing at the Circuit de Catalunya.

The midfield, powered by Renault, will be the sixth team to take the covers off their new car.

Toro Rosso have announced a late afternoon showing of the car, which will be driven by Carlos Sainz and Daniil Kyvat.

Technical director James Key is hoping that continuity as well as a few years experience with their driver line-up will help STR develop the new car.

He recently told Racer Magazine: “For us we’re happy with having a known driver pair, we’re happy having guys we know but importantly it’s the most experienced driver line-up I think the team will have had.

“They will go into the season allowing us to go and develop our 2017 car with their known and understood feedback, so that will be good.”
