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.

Im a bit frustrated with their approach of showing the car. Show the car when u want to show it (and actually show it when is ready), but their way of showing a covered car, than making a video that makes absolutely no sense and is frankly without a purpose and then changing the time of revealing is a bit unfair if not rude.
If i would get the money to start my own F1 team, i would revive Arrows

Interesting.... So they went the Mercedes direction for their nose as well as the high mount front wishbones...

In fact the front end looks quite like the merc....

2007 all over again?? Lol

In all seriousness though...they also have a monkey seat a la Ferrari as well as placeholder bargeboards and sidepod vanes

And last years Mclaren S-duct. I mean the antenna mount at the duct.

This car seems rather short in it's length compared to some others.

Great looking car. Well sculpted sidepods again. Interesting little detail with the lower-front of the sidepod swooping forward into the cockpit tube.
