Toro Rosso Formula 1 Team
Sapinda’s partnership with Scuderia Toro Rosso (STR) is a key part of our business development strategy.
Scuderia Toro Rosso has been competing in the Formula 1 World Championship since 2006. The team was created with a view to finding two extra cockpits for the stars of the future coming through the ranks of the Red Bull Junior Driver Programme. As we reach the significant milestone of our tenth year in the Championship, the team's driver line-up is the perfect synthesis of that goal, as we go into battle with two rookies, Carlos Sainz and Max Verstappen, who have a combined age of just 37!
Currently the team has one win and one pole position to its name, both courtesy of Sebastian Vettel, who produced the fairy tale result at the team's home race, the Italian Grand Prix in Monza, back in 2008. Scuderia Toro Rosso can also be proud of having Daniel Ricciardo and Daniil Kvyat in its ranks, seeing them progress as drivers seeing them progress as drivers and be selected to race for Red Bull Racing.
