Minardi PS05 Cosworth
The new Minardi PS05 was presented at first at the 2005 San Marino GP after the first few races of the season were done by the older PS04B. The new car was the first newly developed racer in several years for the cash strapped Minardi team. It is a dramatic evolution of its immediate predecessor, featuring highly sculpted side pods and a number of aerodynamic innovations aimed at increasing downforce levels, reducing drag, and working in harmony with the wing and diffuser specifications mandated for 2005.
Equally important as the revised car body is the new Cosworth Racing TJ2005 Series 10 power unit which represents a major step forward for Minardi in terms of performance. This engine was bought on a customer basis and was used for the whole season. Cosworth's second team, Red Bull Racing, was provided the Series 12 engine as of the 9th GP of the season.
The team could fight with Jordan on several occasions not to be at the back of the field but they remained a poor performing team just as in the previous years.
