Toro Rosso launches 2019 vehicle

And team boss Franz Tost said: "All things considered, the quality of the synergies with Red Bull Technology, the belief in our very high level of in-house technical knowledge, the impressive development trajectory Honda has shown so far, and the couple of strong young drivers we have available make me feel confident".

The vehicle is powered by Honda's new RA619H hybrid engine. The returning Daniil Kvyat and rookie Alexander Albon will hope to build on a positive first season with Honda power, with the senior Red Bull team also on board with the Japanese marque.

While Toro Rosso has changed both its drivers for the upcoming season, the line-up is not entirely new.

"I'm just focused on myself and let's see how it all goes", he said. Following on from the Haas release last week, the new auto showcases the 2019 regulation changes that include a simplified front wing and larger rear wing, as well as tweaks to the brake ducts.

For 2019 Red Bull has joined Toro Rosso in using Honda power, and Tost believes the senior team's involvement will lead to a more efficient use of its own limited resources, having utilised several 2018-spec Red Bull components on its new vehicle.

The Red Bull junior team endured one of their worst seasons in F1 previous year, finishing ninth and only ahead of Williams after an inconsistent start to life with Honda engines. They know what they're doing. Deputy technical director Jody Eddington said the team has been able to focus more of its attention on certain parts of the vehicle that deliver extra performance. I think we're looking good and I feel that everyone is motivated and focused.

However there were encouraging signs of potential in the Toro Rosso-Honda package, such as Pierre Gasly's excellent fourth place in Bahrain, and the team's sixth and seventh on the grid at Suzuka when Honda introduced a significant power unit upgrade. It will not make Toro Rosso into a championship victor, but it should make it a stronger midfielder. "I just want to get in the vehicle and see what happens".

After the loss of technical director James Key to McLaren, Toro Rosso has chose to form a stronger partnership with its parent company Red Bull.

Albon, who finished second in Formula 2 previous year, added: "In general, the way I've gone about my career and my racing, is I never set any goals on anything".
