The Toro Rosso line-up was changed earlier this season as Max Verstappen moved to Red Bull, swapping place with Daniil Kvyat, but while Sainz missed out on a promotion at that point, he has impressed in the races since and Tost confirmed the Spaniard is set to stay for a third season at Toro Rosso.

Scuderia Toro Rosso can’t wait to get this weekend’s Spanish Grand Prix started, not only because of the exciting racing, but also because it marks the 110th anniversary of Estrella Galicia 0,0. The team is proud and honored to celebrate this historic milestone here, at the Barcelona circuit.

“Now everyone within in the team is focussed on 2015, applying the lessons learned this year.”
With the 2014 season now archived and all Scuderia Toro Rosso’s focus firmly fixed on 2015, our Team Principal Franz Tost takes one last look back at what will come to be seen as a key year in the history of Formula 1.
