Toro Rosso



Red Bull Toro Rosso Honda

In the autumn of 2005 Red Bull announced it had purchased Minardi Formula One team and it would proceed in the season of 2006 as Scuderia Toro Rosso. Toro Rosso functions as a junior team to the Aston Martin Red Bull team with the aim of developing the skills of promising drivers for the senior team. Since 2010 the team has been competing entirely independent from its senior team. In 2017, Toro Rosso switched from Ferrari to Renault Engines, then in 2018 the team switched to Honda engines.

The STR13 has a composite monocoque with eight speed sequential gearbox. The engine is a Honda RA618H six cylinder, 1600 CC limited at 15000 RPM.

The team recruited the Dutch Max Verstappen in 2015 who became the youngest driver in Formula One at just 17 years old.
