Toro Rosso

Toro Rosso was created with a view to finding two extra cockpits for the stars of the future coming through the ranks of the Red Bull junior team young driver programme. Years since its inception, that is still very much the team's raison d'etre. In terms of personnel and facilities, Toro Rosso will still be punching above its weight, compared to the teams it is trying to beat in the championship. However, with its cars designed and built in-house in Faenza, with vital input from the Bicester wind tunnel crew, there is an element of stability within the team, which is always a plus. Born out of the old Minardi team, but funded by Red Bull money, Toro Rosso continues to straddle the divide between the battling small teams and mid-table respectability. The memories of its only win, with Sebastian Vettel at the wheel, in 2008 are cherished but fading. It has churned several talented drivers notably Vettel, followed by Daniel Ricciardo and Max Verstappen but in the process, has culled several others. Like it or not, it has made the grid a lot more interesting.

QUOTES ON TORO ROSSO

It will take time for this to sink in. It was my dream to one day drive a Formula One car and even if my target now has been to fight for poles and race wins, I didn't expect it today and it feels fantastic. Doing it here in Italy is also amazing. There are two Italian teams, Ferrari is the bigger one, but I think today, people will also know about Toro Rosso.
