Toro Rosso officially unveil the STR13

Toro Rosso has officially revealed its new car for 2018 in the Barcelona pitlane. Pictures of the STR13 leaked online earlier this week, before the team itself decided to post some pictures of the car on-track.

However, the pictures could not make out the details of the car. Now, the Red Bull junior team has launched its 2018 challenger while there's under an hour to go before pre-season testing gets underway. It has kept its livery from 2017, which was overall liked by fans.

The team enters the season with the line-up it finished the 2017 season with. Pierre Gasly and Brendon Hartley both made their F1 debuts towards the end of last season, and are both yet to score their first points in F1. 

After running with Ferrari and Renault power units over the last few years, the Italian squad will use Honda engines this year. The Japanese manufacturer ended its partnership with Honda last year, after three years of poor results.

And during testing the Honda seems to be ok. Looks like they are doing some serious mileage starting day 1 in Barcelona. Maybe there is a new dawn for them ....

I really like this livery. Striking and cool yet elegant.

Was Mercedes right to use team orders during the Russian Grand Prix?
