Toro Rosso STR10 - revised rear suspension

21 Jun 2015

Toro Rosso have introduced a major upgrade to the STR10’s rear suspension in Austria.

It integrates with the previous floor update - debuted in Spain - in which two longitudinal slots (two lower right arrows) were added in front of the rear tyres to reduce pressure in this area of the car. The new rear suspension follows the trend set by Mercedes for a raised top wishbone (top arrow), but even more significant is the shape of the lower wishbone (centre arrow). This is very similar to what Mercedes have been doing with their front suspension since last season, with the lower element effectively becoming a wide aerofoil thanks to the new pick up point with the upright.
