The Scuderia Toro Rosso and the Scuderia Ferrari have reached an agreement that will see Toro Rosso using the current power unit of the Ferrari for the season 2016 Formula 1.

The track testing will begin in February 2016, at the Circuit de Catalunya, in Spain.

The announcement dictates “current power unit”, with which Toro Rosso will be mounted in 2016, the engine of 2015 from the Italian brand. The FIA announced following the Council of the Motor that Ferrari had obtained permission to be able to offer a fourth client (in addition to itself, Sauber and Haas), an engine re-approved. That fourth team is Toro Rosso, whose announcement was, as he said hours before Helmut Marko, imminent. Ferrari and Toro Rosso rejoined forces, after seven seasons together, from 2007 to 2013, including 2008, when Sebastian Vettel managed to, in Monza, the only pole position and victory for the small team of energy drinks.

Thus, after the acquisition of Lotus by Renault, and the agreement between Red Bull and Renault, the grill you already have all of the computers defined and is as follows: Four powered by Mercedes (Mercedes, Williams, Force India and Manor), four by Ferrari (Ferrari, Sauber, Haas and Toro Rosso), two by Renault (Renault and Red Bull, although the power unit of the latter will be TAG Heuer) and a team, McLaren, with Honda engine. The only doubt for the next championship is now in the pilots of the Manor, which is still not announce their two drivers.
