Scuderia Toro Rosso F1 Racing Team 2015

History in F1

Team Scuderia Toro Rosso is Austrian energy drink maker, Red Bull’s second F1 team and was established in 2006. This is considered to be the junior team to Team Red Bull and its primary aim is to develop drivers and technologies for the senior team. However, in 2010 the team began competing as a real constructor, independent of the senior Red Bull Team. In 2013, the team finished in 8th place, with 33 points, one rank higher than the previous season. In 2014, the team finished in 7th place, with 30 points.

Information

Team Scuderia Toro Rosso has posted solid results for a young team, getting as far up as 6th in the Constructors’ Championship ranking. The main problem with the team has been its inexperienced drivers. This may again be the team’s stumbling block for the 2015 Season, as it has hired two young drivers Max Verstappen and Carlos Sainz Jr.

Technical Details & Statistics

Team Scuderia Toro Rosso switched engines last season, from Ferrari to Renault. This puts the team in-line with the senior team, which switched to the Renault engine the previous season – the Ferrari engine contract originally belonged to Team Red Bull and was handed down to Scuderia Toro Rosso, as Team Red Bull switched to the Renault engine. The team will use the Renault Energy F1-2015 and STR10 chassis.
