Toro Rosso STR02 - engine cover 08 October 2007

This change appeared a few races back, but almost certainly contributed to the car's strong pace in China. The engine cover sports a rounded dorsal fin, similar to that on sister team Red Bull's car, and that on the BMW Sauber and Ferrari. It improves the aero effiency of the rear wing, and aero balance in general, aiding driveability and allowing the car to make better use of its tyres.
