Scuderia Toro Rosso STR4Scuderia Toro Rosso unveiled this morning at the Circuit de Catalunya in Spain their 2009 challenger, codenamed STR4. The new car has been produced by Red Bull Technology and will be powered once again by a Ferrari V8 engine. During the presentation, Toro Rosso Team Principal Franz Tost said that the Faenza based team will try to emulate last season’s success.


“In 2008 our performance exceeded our expectations,” said Tost. “It’s going to be tough to live up to that this year. Within the team we can rely on a good level of stability, as all the key players on the technical side have been in place for some time now,” he continued.


“Further stability comes courtesy of the input of Red Bull Technology. From Red Bull Racing’s first test in Jerez it appeared the chassis was competitive and that Adrian Newey and his team had come up with a very promising package,” he explained.


“This year marks the third year of our collaboration with Ferrari, which, on both a human and technical level, works very well. In 2008 we lined up two F1 novice drivers, but Bourdais now has 18 grands prix under his belt, and this year’s rookie, Buemi, has already shown well in winter testing,” he added.
