The Toro Rosso team have invited the world’s media to a press day in Barcelona next week - even though they cannot promise their new car will be ready for the event.

Toro Rosso are one of just two teams (Super Aguri being the other) still to unveil their 2007 machines. In a statement they said the STR2 should be ready very soon, but conceded they “are not sure exactly when”.

What they have promised is that senior team management - including co-owner Gerhard Berger and team principal Franz Tost - will be present at the Circuit de Catalunya next Tuesday to answer the press’s questions.

Toro Rosso also said their drivers will be in attendance, suggesting their 2007 race line-up could finally be confirmed. Although Berger has previously admitted Vitantonio Liuzzi and Scott Speed are well placed to retain their seats, the team have so far resisted making any official announcements.
