Scuderia Toro Rosso has launched its new 2017 car – complete with a new livery, not as light a blue as had been expected but much lighter than the traditional dark blue Red Bull blue. The team returns to Renault power in 2017 – which is useful in terms of cooperation with Red Bull Racing, but that has meant a lot of hard work for the team over the winter months.
“With driver continuity and a power unit which made a major step forward last year and which should be developing strongly this year, it just leaves the chassis as an unknown quantity,” said technical director James Key. “We always set ourselves ambitious targets and this year, we are taking a more long-term view over the 20 races, with a long list of planned in-season developments. I suspect it will be a very busy year with plenty of performance still to be found.”
