    Toro Rosso tease photo of new F1 car

    It’s not due to be officially unveiled until Monday, but after spy shots of the Toro Rosso STR13 were leaked online, the team responded with their own photo of the new car.

    The image, taken during the team’s pre-testing filming day at a very wet Misano in Italy, confirms a very similar livery to that used last year - for now at least.

    The car does of course have one big change from 2017, carrying the logo - and power unit - of new partner Honda.

    Brendon Hartley was behind the wheel for the 100km-limited outing, and will be on hand to officially introduce the new car with team mate Pierre Gasly immediately prior to the start of the first pre-season test in Barcelona on Monday.

    Force India are set to reveal their 2018 challenger on the same morning.
