Shortly before going back out on track at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya for the second pre-season test, Scuderia Toro Rosso unveiled its 2016 World Championship challenger, the STR11, in its new livery.
Franz Tost, Team Principal: “We are proud of this car and what it represents in terms of the work that went into designing and building it in record time in our new facility in Faenza. And I am particularly pleased that 2016 sees a return to Ferrari power, with everyone looking forward to working once again with our friends from Maranello. None of this would be possible without the invaluable support of our partners and sponsors; Red Bull, Sapinda, Estrella Galicia. We are very happy to welcome back our friends from Falcon Private Bank and to start a new cooperation with Casio Edifice. In Formula 1, the stars are the drivers and I am keen to see what our two very talented youngsters, Max and Carlos can achieve this year, as they are now in their second season.”
Max Verstappen is at the wheel of the STR11 today. He will also drive on Day 3, while Carlos Sainz drives on Wednesday and Friday.
The STR 11 is the first Toro Rosso car to be built in the new factory facility in Faenza.
