Scuderia Toro Rosso launched the STR10 at the Jerez de la Frontera. The car will be raced by F1 rookies Max Verstappen and Carlos Sainz. The STR10 has been produced under the technical directorship of James Key with Chief Designers Paolo Marabini and Matteo Piraccini. It was built in Faenza but the aerodynamic development was done in Bicester in England.
“We’ve put a lot of work into the STR10 and we are convinced that we will have a successful year,” said team boss Franz Tost. “Our objective is to finish fifth in the Constructors’ Championship and we are ready to do our best to achieve it. Our engine partner Renault has also worked very hard to come up with new modifications and I’m sure that our joint effort will give us a package which will certainly be very competitive. All in all, we have a much stronger team as well as a very competitive STR10 and fast drivers; it’s a great combination.
