Toro Rosso STR6 Launch pictures ( 1st of February)


Scuderia Toro Rosso presented the media their brand new STR6 in the pitlane of the Circuit Ricardo Tormo in Valencia, Spain, on 1 February 2011.

Technical specifications

Chassis carbon-fibre and honeycomb composite monocoque
Suspension (front) Upper and lower carbon wishbones, torsion bar springs and anti-roll bars, Sachs dampers
Suspension (rear) as front
Engine Ferrari Type 056 2,400 cc (146.5 cu in) 90° V8, limited to 18,000 RPM with KERS naturally aspirated mid-mounted
Transmission Seven-speed semi-automatic gearbox with reverse gear
Weight 640 kg (1,411 lb) (including driver)
Fuel Shell V-Power
Tyres Pirelli P Zero
Advanti Wheels (front and rear): 13″

Toro Rosso STR06 ? Double Floor (Scarbsf1’s Blog)
“Scuderia Toro Rosso (STR) launched their car on the first day of the Valencia test. It?s significance has been somewhat lost amongst the fanfare of the front running teams cars and the innovation of the midfield runners. However the new STR06 deserves more attention, as it has some unique aerodynamic concepts that are drawing praise from other teams engineers. STR have been able to reduce the cooling and packaging demands placed on the sidepods. Thus with a smaller sidepod envelope, the team have revived an old concept from Ferrari, the double floor.”
