Toro Rosso has released the first images of its 2019 Formula One car, the STR14, one week ahead of its testing debut in Barcelona next Monday.
The most visible changes to the car from last year’s are those mandated by 2019’s new technical regulations, including a wider, simplified front wing, smaller barge boards and a higher, wider rear wing. However, the sidepod inlets have also been heavily revised from last year’s STR13 and now follow the design trend led by Ferrari in recent years. The rear of the car also looks more tightly packaged as the team enters its second year with Honda power after switching to the Japanese manufacturer last year.
Toro Rosso has an all-new driver line-up this year — after losing Pierre Gasly to Red Bull and cutting ties with Brendon Hartley at the end of 2018, the STR14 will be driven by the returning Daniil Kvyat and rookie Alexander Albon.
