Toro Rosso ready to roll

Having completed the final FIA crash test, Toro Rosso are ready to launch the STR9 at Jerez next week.

This season Daniil Kvyat and Jean-Eric Vergne will be entrusted with Toro Rosso's Championship and both drivers are set to get the most out of pre-season testing.

Toro Rosso will be in action from the very first day at Jerez next Tuesday with Vergne have the honour of debuting the car, which has passed all the car tests.

"One very important question has already been answered, as STR9 has successfully passed all the necessary FIA crash tests," the team said.

"That's a vital part of our preparation, because while in the past, you could run a car in winter testing that had not passed the crash test, for the past two years, cars had to be fully FIA certified before taking part in any track action.

"Yet again, the safety regulations are more stringent than in the past and for 2014, for all teams, the main crash structures, monocoque, side impact spars, nose and rear crash element are all different."
