Toro over­time

Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

Toro Rosso is plan­ning to have staff run­ning 24 hours a day, seven days a week in the lead up to the first pre-sea­son test next month. The new rules have man­dated a huge re­design for all teams on the grid, mean­ing some may bat­tle to be ready in time for the sea­son-opener in Aus­tralia in March. Test­ing starts at Barcelona on Fe­bru­ary 27. “From the pro­duc­tion side, we will have to work 24/7 for a pe­riod,” said team head Franz Tost. “From the mid­dle of Jan­uary through to the mid­dle of Fe­bru­ary, we will run three shifts per day. It’s a very short pe­riod be­cause it’s quite cost in­ten­sive.”
