Scuderia Toro Rosso STR14

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.

About time they had updated the bargeboard. Finally some impressive details, the new front wing seems to work a treat, they have brought few spares.

i think TR went down the road to ducatti and ask how to get away with aero appendages, that's just an X-wing with a mirror connected to it!

According to this quote from https://www.auto-motor-und-sport.de/for ... ockenheim/, the upgrades didn't work as expected. Maybe too much at once? The bargeboards look too busy and the POU cup a bit of a disturbance to airflow.
In Hockenheim the result was correct. However, the upgrades did not fire. The new bargeboards, baffles and spikes on the underbody were dismantled after the training sessions. "You did not improve the car. Toro Rosso has to become more consistent with his new parts. There is too much variance. Sometimes they work, sometimes not ", says Marko. In the team but also the setup is suspected.

So much "analysis" even on well-known websites and reputable TV coverage is just so much vague generalisation - "this subtle change to the front wing endplate makes the outwash, more outwash-y" etc. I'm sure the teams use HPC computer clusters and CFD software for a reason.
