Toro Rosso unveils the STR14

Toro Rosso has launched its 2019 challenger, the STR14 in a similar livery to what it has used since 2017. The Red Bull junior squad has offered further insight into the 2019 regulations, which sees a number of revised aerodynamic rules.

The front wings for the upcoming season have been simplified in an attempt to reduce the outwash the cars produce. Bargeboards have also been lowered, while the rear wing has become steeper to enhance the effect of the Drag Reduction System.

This year, Toro Rosso is using a complete rear end from sister team Red Bull, as the two teams will run Honda engines this season. It will also use some parts of Red Bull's front suspension throughout the 2019 campaign.

Deputy Technical Director Jody Egginton said: "The rear end has been provided by Red Bull Technology and the key change for Toro Rosso, being that we are taking a gearbox casing and rear suspension although many of the internals of the gearbox are similar to parts we have used in the past.

"Having committed to parts supply from Red Bull Technology, a lot of effort has to be put to integrate everything as well as possible and of course, this remains under the sole control of Toro Rosso."

Daniil Kvyat returns to the Faenza outfit after being dropped from the Red Bull programme towards the end of the 2017 season. He will be joined by Alexander Albon, who ended the 2018 FIA Formula 2 championship in third place.

  • Did they change anything from last year's livery? Seriously, looks almost exactly like last year's car. Other than aero, changes of course.

    • Deatils, but nothing major. But does it matter, when the livery is rad?

    • One sponsor. I don't see any Acronis stickers on the car anymore.

      Acronis jumped over to Williams, and are still there.

    • @calle Fair point and it is a pretty awesome livery. Looking at it causes me to be even more shocked by the astonishing lack of creativity in the new Williams. At least the last couple of years they had nice livery and merchandise, even if the performance was dreadful. This year I can already imagine the team merchandise in the same color scheme

  • Probably would have been more disappointed if they would have changed it drastically. It's a good looking livery but doesn't show much initiative. Let's hope that they put more into the engineering is why.

    Same great looking livery as last year. But what I'm really diggin' is Albon's lid.

    Tost's musings: 'Best livery of last year? never mind wasting time on the livery again. Instead lets use all our resources somewhere else.'
