Faenza, Italy - Toro Rosso expressed confidence in engine partner Honda and a new driver line-up on Monday as it became the second Formula One team to pull the covers off a 2019 car.
The Italy-based team, which finished ninth out of 10 last year, presented the STR14 online with no predictions about its performance once the racing starts in Australia on March 17.
"As is always the case before the start of a season, it’s too early to say and we don’t want to set a specific target, at least not now," commented team principal Franz Tost in a statement.
"The quality of the synergies with Red Bull Technology, the belief in our very high level of in-house technical knowledge, the impressive development trajectory Honda has shown so far, and the couple of strong young drivers we have available make me feel confident," he added.
Red Bull-owned Toro Rosso acts as a feeder team to Red Bull Racing, both of whose drivers Max Verstappen and Pierre Gasly graduated from Tost's outfit.
