One of the most important innovations of the STR12 is that this year will count with a propeller Renault last generation, which should allow the team to again be competitive in terms of top speed, something of what they suffered in 2016 especially, to be forced to have a Ferrari engine of 2015. In the video, Toro Rosso leaves the idea that the public presentation of the car will take place in Barcelona on the occasion of the start of the test, but there is still no official confirmation.
