Toro Rosso

History of Toro Rosso, in contrast to the oldest member of Formula 1 team Ferrari, not full of victories and spectacular events. In the four years since the date of creation, the only victory and pole position brought Toro Rosso only young racer Sebastian Vettel. Toro Rosso «rose" from the team Minardi, which in 2005 was acquired by Red Bull. Trying to put an end to rumors and gossip ambiguous, Dietrich Mateschitz, Red Bull boss is trying to convince the public okologonochnuyu that the team is sold only as a testing ground for inexperienced riders. Toro Rosso's debut was pretty confident. Riders Vitantonio Liuzzi and Scott Speed ​​made the impossible seem easy, and toyed with his rivals - such as Formula 1 newcomers. Still, such a brilliant debut can not be named. His spectacled by Toro Rosso was able to open only in the tenth stage of the Grand Prix of the USA, and Liuzzi for the 2006 season has managed to earn just one point. In 2007, the success of Toro Rosso become more visible. Sebastian Vettel in the Japanese Grand Prix came in third place, but the lack of experience did not allow him to remain in this position. The next race in China have been better. Vettel has come to finish fourth. This undoubted success has allowed Toro Rosso to take in the Constructors' Championship in seventh place, ahead of team Honda and Spyker. 2008 until the most successful in the history of Toro Rosso. After the failures at the beginning of the season, the team began to gain momentum. Sebastian Vettel managed to take pole position at the Italian Grand Prix and bring the team first and, alas, so far only victory. Throughout the season, Toro Rosso drivers Vettel and Bourdais continued to gain points. 39 points, more than ever the team allowed Toro Rosso to go up to sixth place in the Constructors' Championship. Toro Rosso next recession experienced in 2009. Having taken part in 17 competitions, the team was able to get over the whole season, only 8 points and as a result of only 10th place. What will be the season for Toro Rosso in 2010, it is difficult to say. Perhaps the Sebastien Buemi pilots and Jaime Alguersuari will make the team if not the leader, then a worthy opponent for the elders of Formula 1.
