'STR' March Launch in Bahrain

The team formerly owned by Paul Stoddart and called Minardi - 'Scuderia Toro Rosso' - will launch a new F1 car for 2006 in Bahrain. Taken over by energy drink Red Bull in November, the Faenza based squad will join its sister team in unveiling a racer just ahead of the season opener, to be held in March. The car is to be called 'STR1' and is seemingly an unique development based on Red Bull's '05 car.

Team boss Franz Tost admitted earlier this week that Toro Rosso is 'pushing very hard' to get the car ready for the first race next year. Milton Keynes-based Red Bull Racing held a staff Christmas party in nearby Bedford (UK) last Saturday, with David Coulthard, Christian Klien, Robert Doornbos and Christian Horner all in attendance. Also there, was the Ferrari powered 2006 'RB2'.
