Toro Rosso STR3 - nosecone delta winglets 11 October 2008

As both are designed and produced by Red Bull Technologies, Red Bull's RB4 and Toro Rosso's STR3 not only share design concept and parts, they also follow similar development paths. One race later than Red Bull, Toro Rosso have debuted these now-familiar horn-like winglets at Fuji. The concept, first introduced by BMW Sauber (inset), helps improve front-end balance as well as cooling. Here Toro Rosso have paired it with the widest version of their front bridge wing, typical for high-downforce tracks, with sharper front-end handling the main expected benefit.
