Team Toro Rosso presented its new car STR12 where in the upcoming season, Daniil Kvyat and Carlos Sainz will compete for points.
The presentation itself was held in Barcelona in less than a day before the start of the first pre-season tests. The upcoming season was supposed to be a little bit easier for the team from Faenza, as this year he uses modern Renault engine and not the outdated powerplant Ferrari in 2016.
Originally the presentation was scheduled for 90 minutes early, but the team was forced to move for reasons beyond his control.
It is worth noting that the new car is a subsidiary of the Red Bull team has exceeded the expectations of many. When Daniil Kvyat and Carlos Sainz removed the symbolic veil, the world appeared one of the most concise from the point of view of design of new cars.
STR12 made in a new color scheme – despite the fact that still uses the team’s signature blue color, its hue was deeper and cleaner, and the sides added red stripes.
Logo Red Bull as a bull now appears not in the classic yellow-red range, and in silver, harmoniously fitting into the “fin”.
The nose cone also was a success from the designers STR12 – it looks neater to shown that variants of other teams.
