F1 2014 – Toro Rosso unveil STR9

Formula One News » F1 2014 – Toro Rosso unveil STR9

Toro Rosso have unveiled their Renault powered STR9 at Jerez a short while ago.

The car will be driven by Jean-Éric Vergne and Daniil Kvyat.

Team principal Franz Tost said “The new rules have required a completely new design philosophy, starting with a clean sheet of paper.”

“Having invested in new staff and facilities over the past few years, we have been able to tackle the task of designing and building the STR9 with a group of engineers and designers that have been working on the project since Day 1, under the leadership of James Key. That stability has been of great benefit, while in other areas we hope that changes we have introduced will also bring a step up in performance.

“Not only do we have a new engine configuration with the move to a 1.6 litre turbocharged V6 coupled to two energy recovery systems, here at Toro Rosso we also have a new engine supplier in the shape of Renault. The French company’s credentials are impeccable, having won the World Championship titles for the past four years and we have already established an excellent working relationship with its engineers, since our partnership was announced at the 2013 Monaco Grand Prix.

“Joining forces with Renault also means that, within the framework of the Sporting Regulations, we can once again enjoy synergies on the technical front with our colleagues at Red Bull Technology.”

    It’s all FIA’s fault. They obviously people unable to write rules for the overall benefit of the sport. Pity.
