Toro Rosso STR7 – Three rear wing specs so far !

      Red Bull genes are also found  within Toro Rosso’s DNA , not though in speed but mostly  in development rate . Till the Chinese GP three rear wing specs were raced/tested as shown in the images above. The Chinese spec was also  tested at Jerez on February and has a main flap with a bending upwards profile in its middle section to emphasize downforce production close to the endplates zone . Malaysian/Australian spec instead has the opposite philosophy on downforce production  featuring a bending downwards profile in the middle section . At Barcelona on March a mini plane was added on the beam wing  to increase downforce and  remains traditionally a good option for high downforce tracks like Monaco , Hungary and Singapore

Toro Rosso STR7 – New front wing for Melbourne

       Toro Rosso tested a new front wing at Barcelona on March  .The new wing has a shortened  slot in the main flap and also moved to the back to decrease the effective wing span in an attempt to make the wing less susceptible to sudden wing stalling (downforce loss) . Furthermore the main flap encounters  the endplates differently , the mini slot at the second flap close to the endplate is also new, while the endplate stand different on both rear end as well as to outer vertical elements .The new wing is being used by Toro Rosso since Melbourne .
