Toro Rosso STR12 Speculation Thread

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.

Why not just take that cover off? This winter feels very long.

Probably because you would see an incomplete car. There is still more than 2 weeks to go in which they won't sit idle looking at their hopefully beautiful creation :wink:

Apparently the new car will be light blue. Like the colour of their sugar free cans of Red Bull. Will look good in my opinion.
About time they changed that dull colour scheme.

=D> Light blue color scheme will be refreshing!
To me the dark blue & gold colors are boring & too conservative. It doesn't jive with the purpose of being a jr. developmental team. The look doesn't match the vision. The team should look more hip, vibrant, bold and free.
It seems like RB doesn't want STR to look better, fearing the jr. team will draw attention away from RBR.

I'm pretty sure that the car has got a sharkfin and similar nose tip like in 2016
