Toro Rosso Unveil the STR14

Red Bull junior squad Toro Rosso has unveiled its challenger for the 2019 Formula 1 World Championship.

After the loss of technical director James Key to McLaren, Toro Rosso has made a decision to form a stronger partnership with its parent company Red Bull.

"The chassis itself, as per regulations, is a complete Toro Rosso design and IP as is the front outboard suspension, along with all aspects of the cooling systems, power unit installation and steering column".

Tost said the new Toro Rosso, called the STR14, features a lot of parts bought from Red Bull that were on the vehicle which finished third in the constructors' championship and took four wins.

By the end of this week nine of F1's 10 teams will have either revealed their all-new auto in full, or their 2019 livery, ahead of the start of winter testing at Barcelona next Monday.

But the Red Bull junior outfit, who finished ninth last season, do have an all-new driver pairing in Daniil Kvyat and Alexander Albon for the upcoming campaign.

Toro Rosso finished ninth in the constructors' championship previous year and achieved a best result of fourth place in the Bahrain Grand Prix thanks to Pierre Gasly. However, the sidepod inlets have also been revised from last year's STR13 and now follow the design trend led by Ferrari in recent years.

Toro Rosso has an all-new driver line-up this year after losing Pierre Gasly to Red Bull and cutting its ties with Brendon Hartley at the end of 2018.

"I don't want to say whether I've changed or not. I just want to get in the auto and see what happens".

"I enjoyed my time working with Ferrari, which helped me keep in good shape and in touch with what is going on in Formula 1 on the technical front", said Kvyat, who tested Toro Rosso's 2018 auto during the post-race Abu Dhabi test. "Every year, it was just each race, take it step by step, focus and race in that session - whether it would be practice, qualifying or the race." said Albon. "But in terms of the jump from Formula 2 to Formula 1, it's really, really big", Albon said. "I'm just focused on myself and let's see how it all goes".
