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.

The ex-pilot of Formula 1 Gerhard Berger has denied rumours that Red Bull and its owner Dietrich Mateschitz are tired of Formula 1.Gerhard Berger "It's wrong that he got tired of Formula 1. Of course, he is dissatisfied with the current situation in his team.But Red Bull is still a very strong team, and even in these difficult times it is unlikely that someone will leave her, especially as Adrian Newey is at the peak of his creative activity. There is no engine that can bring the chances for the title, so of course the situation is frustrating in the long run.Red Bull always had a lot of patience, and now when needed, they suffer. It's a tough time, but you can see the light at the end of the tunnel. Honda, running in the Toro Rosso, is the beginning.I believe in Honda, which has a sports culture in the company, the resources and now the team with the mentality of Red Bull.I can imagine that Honda will return to its original shape and build a top-end engines.We must wait the new regulations on the engines. This Aston Martin has the resources and capabilities to do this I don't know, but I doubt it. Red Bull do not get hung up on this company".

Season 2018 seven vacancies

In the course of Grand Prix of Singapore became aware of the extension of the contracts of Valtteri Bottas, the pilots Force India, and also about the transfer of Carlos Sainz in the Renault. The teams are still seven vacancies, one of which may take Daniil Kvyat.Williams - 2 wakasiyaka no contracts with the pilots, but there is no doubt that lance Stroll will stay in the team, given the investment made by Strolla senior.In a couple of Canadians who will soon turn 19 years old, Williams is seeking an experienced pilot, over the age of 25 - this requirement is title sponsor Martini. Until recently, Felipe Massa remained the only candidate for this place, but first started talking about Paul di Resta, which now appears to be backup pilot of the team, and then about Robert Kubica. Kubica first tested in the part of Renault, but there chose Carlos Sainz, and now Robert is actively training in the simulator Williams.Another candidate - Marcus Ericsson, who may lose the place in the Sauber. The only advantage of the Swede is a solid set of sponsors.Toro Rosso - 2 vakansiyalar Sainz goes to Renault, and with high probability it will be replaced by Frenchman Pierre went Out - other suitable pilots in the Red Bull yet.Obviously, stay Sainz in the Toro Rosso, then went Out would take place Daniil Kvyat. Now, the Russian pilot has a chance to keep his job, it's important to make mistakes in the remaining races.Meanwhile, a new partner Honda want to see in the ranks of Toro Rosso its pilot Nobuharu Matsushita, which now appears in the Formula-2. It is not clear in what capacity - possibly as a test pilot. If the Japanese insist on the place of combat pilot, it is easy to guess that it will go with Cuatom.Few people know that now Matsushita listed as a pilot for the development of the McLaren-Honda. However, before the combat cars are not all limited to work in the simulator.McLaren - 1 vakantiecentrum with Stoffel Vendorno confirmed a month ago that negotiations with Fernando Alonso go. Earlier two-time champion reiterated that he would remain at McLaren, if the team change engine supplier. It happened, and now, as far as we know, Alonso and the McLaren management to discuss details of the new contract. Most likely, the agreement will be signed for one season to sign a contract for a longer period, the Spaniard just will not risk it.If Alonso refuses though it goes nowhere, then McLaren, in the words of Zac brown, have a plan "B". Obviously, this refers to Jenson button. Lando Norris, who will soon turn 18, they're unlikely to be put into a fighting machine.Sauber - 2 vacanciel contract extension with Ferrari Sauber head of Frederic Vasseur said he was willing to give one or even two seats for the wards of the Scuderia. Obviously, in return, the porters expect to receive discounts on the powerplant, gearbox and other components that will deliver Maranello.Ferrari has Antonio Giovinazzi and Charles Leclere, who in the course of this season, was repeatedly brought to the tests. And Giovinazzi even held two races, replacing the injured Pascal Wehrlein. If Ferrari is willing to pay for seats of both pilots, no place will be Marcus Ericsson. If the Scuderia will pull only one place, it is likely that Eriksson and his sponsors will remain in the Sauber.Without mestis the above it follows that in the season of 2018, we will not see on the grid protege Mercedes of Pascal Wehrlein. In the customer team Force India all the seats were occupied, and in Williams he victims. Perhaps he will remain in Formula 1 as a backup pilot factory team Mercedes.

In the end, it was removed from Red Bull, and it was a blow from which he never recovered.Now Kvyat is far behind Sainz, while he often makes stupid mistakes. All his penalties are stupid. He's not progressing, he told us the same level as in the first race behind the wheel of a Toro Rosso.Wonder if Kvyat's career will be over soon. Might keep it just because they need a pilot from Russia. But it's clear that Kvyat doesn't deserve a place in Formula-1. If they need a Russian driver, you should pay attention to Artem Markelov".
