Toro Rosso reveal 2019 F1 vehicle

The STR14

Toro Rosso rolled out its 2019 Honda-powered STR14 at Faenza, a vehicle that will be entrusted to F1 returnee Daniil Kvyat and rookie Alexander Albon.

"Although the timescale for some of these changes was tight, and in the short term these changes have generated some extra work, the development rate of the 2019 vehicle is now strong and responding well to the aero developments being evaluated in CFD and the wind tunnel".

US-based Haas have led on this approach since 2016 and Toro Rosso see it as a way to better use resources.

Sitting opposite the Russian in the team's garage this season will be new recruit Alexander Albon.

"As is always the case before the start of a season, it's too early to say and we don't want to set a specific target - at least not now", team principal Franz Tost said.

The second Toro Rosso auto to be designed around the Honda power unit, the STR14 was launched online via a video on Monday.

Williams will present its 2019 livery and new title sponsor later this afternoon, before Renault takes centre stage on Tuesday.

Kamala Harris: 'I Believe We Need to Legalize Marijuana'
Majorities of Millennials (74%), Gen Xers (63%) and Baby Boomers (54%) say the use of marijuana should be legal. Harris's career as a California prosecutor has been under scrutiny as she ramps up her presidential campaign.

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.

Daniil Kvyat returns for his third spell at Toro Rosso following a year away from F1, while the British-born Alexander Albon, who was also previously axed from the Red Bull programme, is ready for his rookie season in the sport.

"A number of changes have been put in place regarding how we develop the 2019 auto, including the approach to how we develop the vehicle aerodynamically", Egginton said. I believe in the guys in the team. I think we're looking good and I feel that everyone is motivated and focused. "I can see that, and it gives me confidence for the future". If the team can do that, then developments will be better planned and it can move forward.

Toro Rosso concluded its 2018 campaign 9th in the Constructors' standings, but as a team that was helping Red Bull Racing lay the groundwork for its switch to Honda power this year, the Italian outfit was often forced to the back of the grid on Sundays as a result of grid penalties attached to its chronic engine component changes.

The junior Red Bull squad finished ninth in the championship previous year, ahead of only the struggling Williams outfit.

Red Bull's junior team are this year taking advantage of new rules allowing teams to buy parts from rivals.

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