Toro Rosso STR8 – winter testing (pre season) tech summary


Toro Rosso STR8 SV Winter 1

Chassis :  STR8

Engine : Ferrari typo 056

 

 

     The STR8 has a slimmer rear end, better weight distribution which is shifted forward, redesigned rear suspension, interesting rear brake vanes and a full sized modesty panel . The sidepods of the new car show a deep undercut while the twin floor concept is abandoned as it was proved difficult to develop .Thus the radiators are now placed lower to the ground level allowing a more aggressively drop to the rear of the sidepod deck .

Winter testing updates :

  A modified diffuser was fitted on STR8 at last pre session test at Barcelona on March .

 

 

EVALUATION :

Aerodynamic performance :  offer a stable car but still questionable

Speed :.  Seems to be the last of the middle pack , faster only to Caterham and Marussia

Tyres management  :   above average

Reliability  :  well
