Toro Rosso STR9 – New nose cone before Melbourne

 

 

     STR9 had a face lifting before Melbourne in an attempt to increase the amount of air passing under the nose . The new front end has elongated finger extension and highly arched and wider wing pillars which both increase the volume of  space under the nose cone and furthermore curve a distinctive air channel above the nose. Channel shaped noses spring their origin back in 1998 on Mc Laren MP4/13, but in Mc Laren case the channel was shaped close the cocpit, rather than the nose end.
