Toro Rosso respond to blurry image leak by releasing first official STR13 image; Honda-powered car ran for the first time at shakedown

The STR13 was unofficially published in a blurry image taken from a grandstand and posted on Twitter from the team’s filming day in Italy, where the car took to the track for the first time.

Following Toro Rosso responded with a picture of their own and the message: “Why settle for a leaked photo, when you can have an original.”

The power-unit supplier Honda tweeted: “People leak photos, we leak better ones”

Brendon Hartley was behind the wheel for the 100km-limited outing, and will be on hand to officially introduce the new car with team mate Pierre Gasly immediately prior to the start of the first pre-season test in Barcelona on Monday.
