Minardi for decades it would be a concept for survival, financial difficulties, last places, a miracle and a springboard for young talent. In particular, the latter is expected to remain under the new leadership from Red Bulla. But only for the races of the red bull youth program.
By taking over the team from Faenze by Stoddarta, F1 lost one of the most sympathetic teams. On the other hand, it has gained a financially stable, seriously managed and ambitious team. Despite the smaller financial possibilities, there were funds Tora Rossa otherwise limited, but no one underestimated it Red Bulla and his other teams.
The team gained the most reputation with a sensational victory Sebastian Vettl to a race in Monza held in the rain. Otherwise, the rise of the team continued, but they could not keep Vettl, as, logically, he moved to the first team Red Bull.
Z Buemi in Alguersuari the tradition of young “savages” continued. No big surprises, but enough for a solid place in the middle of the field. By engaging Ricciarda in Vergneja Toro Rosso continued his youth work in 2012. They won four eighth places (Vergne) and four ninth places (Ricciardo). In 2013, Toro Rosso bet on continuity. While Vergne wasn’t convinced, Ricciardo provided a few surprises. For these surprises, he was rewarded with a promotion to the first team, where he became a teammate of Vettl.
His seat at Toro Rosso was taken over by a Russian in the 2014 season Daniil Kvjat, who showed great performances in his premiere season, allowing him a direct foray into the first team. There, in 2015, he took over the Vettl race car, which went to Ferrari. Despite a good season, Vergne had to leave the team as Toro Rosso bet on a brand new duo this season Max Verstappen in Carlos Sainz.
After much criticism due to the age of the new racers, Max and Carlos have confirmed that they deservedly got a seat in F1. Compared to 2014, the team scored twice as many points, even though they raced with Renault engines. In 2016, Toro Rosso switched to Ferrari engines, but these were one season behind the current ones. The racing lineup was the same, but since the race for the Spanish Grand Prix, Kvjat and Verstappen have replaced teams. Toro Rosso won seventh place among the teams this year.
The year 2017 was for Toro Rosso very turbulent. They started the season with Sainz and Kvyat and ended with Hartley in Galsyem. Earlier, Kvjat was fired due to poor results, and Sainz went to Renault. The latter also happened because they were able to terminate the contract with the French engine manufacturer. Because Red Bull planned for the young team to use the engines Honda. The separation from Renault, however, has become a real media mudslinging.
Working with Honda in 2018 initially cared for little negative news. Nevertheless, Toro Rosso has lagged behind the results of previous seasons. The only bright spot was Gaslya’s fourth place in the race in Bahrain. This year, the team scored 33 points and finished only ninth.
They called again for the 2019 season Kvjataand replaced the weak Hartley Alexander Albon, who then replaced the city with Pierre Gasly.
