Ok, let’s get this out of the way. The Scuderia Toro Rosso STR9 makes a Clydesdale look like a polo pony. In the genitals department. Because of the nose. Penis.
F1?s new regulations have had a transformative effect on the noses of the freshly turbocharged 2014 cars. Wide and tall has been replaced by low and narrow. While the interpretations from a few of the teams thus far have left the sexual organ references more to the imagination, Toro Rosso has let it all flamboyantly hang out.
The Toro Rosso’s nose isn’t the only thing new, as Toro Rosso says they started designing this car longer before the season than any other car they’ve built before. It also has Renault power for the first time, as the Italian-based team has circumcised its relationship with Ferrari.
The STR9 and its gigantic Rhino-sized penis will hit the track at Jerez for the first F1 test of the year this week.
