Toro Rosso Awaiting Red Bull Aero Updates

Toro Rosso, the feeder and sister team to Red Bull Racing have admitted they expect progress to be slow until they recieve the aerodynamic upgrades which powered the RB5 to victory at the hands of Sebastian Vettel last weekend at the British Grand Prix.

The new aerodynamic updates included a new front wing and nose section, new diffuser, floor and rear wing.

Toro Rosso were formed in 2006 after Red Bull admitted desire for a second team, and with one owner not being allowed to own two teams Gerhard Berger and Franz Tost were co-owners with exclusive Red Bull support and sponsorship.  The team are still based in Faenza, Italy and scored their first win last season in Monza.

“We suffer from the lack of new specification aero parts,” Franz Tost told F1Live.

“We will have these for Hungary, when I expect and hope that this will bring us back to the front end of the midfield.”
