Toro Rosso STR8 Ferrari

A place to discuss the characteristics of the cars in Formula One, both current as well as historical. Laptimes, driver worshipping and team chatter does not belong here.

A quick reminder that the car threads are a haven for exploring the actual features of the actual car.

We have other threads for team & race conversations.

Thread will be unlocked when the car is launched ... Monday 4th February @ 1700 GMT

Ora quel filo è ben teso in camera da letto, a un palmo dal materasso: l'abilità richiesta per camminarci sopra è la stessa, ma la sfida è cambiata per sempre".

Either there is some technology being shared between the two RB teams or STR simply carbon copied the front wing philosophy RBR uses.

But which directs airflow to a completely different body.

This is the same FW from the last 2 seasons, nothing like RB that updates every other race almost :P

It´s undoubtedly a very similar wing,

The wing on this launch is 90% the exact same as last years launch wing, the change is what came during 2012 season.

And endplates stem from STR6

Any rear shots? On first glance - different sidepods, modesty panel, front brake ducts, camera pods mounted between FW pylons + they've gone for gold/bronze wheels this time.
