Toro Rosso STR9 - updated nose 15 March 2014
Toro Rosso introduced this nose at the final Bahrain test and have retained it for Melbourne after passing the required FIA crash test. It is similar to its predecessor (inset), but the design is more extreme so as to improve airflow under the car. The central finger section (1) is longer and has a different form due to the narrowing of the top section, which now has a far more pronounced 'M' shape (2). As a consequence of this, the nose's vertical pillars are angled and wider than before.
