Toro Rosso STR7
Toro Rosso are the third team to launch their car today. The car is called the STR7 and will be raced in 2012 by Daniel Ricciardo and Jean-Eric Vergne.
The STR7 features the stepped nose that is now characteristic of 2012 Formula 1 cars. The new car retains the double floor that was a unique feature of the STR6. There is a gap between the bottom of the sidepods and the floor, which effectively creates a double floor, useful for extracting extra downforce. The car is powered by the Ferrari V8 engine, as used in the Ferrari F2012.
Toro Rosso have released a video of the new car, which can be found by clicking here.
The STR7 will be on track at the first pre-season test in Jerez, Spain from tomorrow 7 February to Friday 10 February, with Ricciardo first to drive the new car tomorrow morning.
