Toro Rosso technical director James Key believes the team could challenge for sixth place in the standings this year, although he admits it is a big ask. Team boss Franz Tost said during the launch of the new STR8 that the Faenza-based squad was aiming for sixth this year after a disappointing 2012 in which the squad could only score 26 points on its way to ninth position. Key reckons that sixth place is an ambitious target given the resources Toro Rosso has, but that it can be achievable if the team has taken the step forward it hopes for.

October 30th, 2012
Formula 1 teams have played down the prospect of next season turning into a development arms race on exhaust layouts. That comes despite Red Bull’s recent dominant streak, which is believed to derive from its efforts to perfect its exhaust layout and rear bodywork.
October 14th, 2012
Red Bull has been urged to banish thoughts of its world championship chances, as team principal Christian Horner says it cannot afford to ease off in its push for wins. Although Sebastian Vettel’s third consecutive victory has sealed his place as favourite for the 2012 crown, Horner thinks the situation is far tighter than many believe.
October 12th, 2012
Red Bull believes title success in 2012 would be its ‘biggest triumph’ in Formula 1. Although the team is chasing its third consecutive world championship, team boss Christian Horner believes that the way it has fought back this season would make this title much sweeter. “I think it would be our biggest victory in many respects, because it doesn’t get easier,” said Horner, when asked by AUTOSPORT about how this year’s title would compare to the previous two if Red Bull won it.
July 25th, 2012
Red Bull Racing will be forced to alter the engine mapping of its Renault power units from this weekend’s Hungarian Grand Prix after the FIA moved to close a loophole in the regulations, as predicted by AUTOSPORT yesterday . Although Red Bull’s cars were deemed legal by the race stewards in Germany last weekend , they are believed to have been operating with engine maps that had reduced torque in the mid RPM range
July 25th, 2012
Formula 1 and the FIA should do all they can to avoid another lengthy debate about technical regulations in the wake of the controversy over Red Bull’s engine torque maps in Germany. That is the view of McLaren managing director Jonathan Neale, who said a swift and firm resolution would be in the interests of the teams and the sport as a whole. Last year the ruling over blown diffusers caused protracted arguments and several contradictory decisions over the British Grand Prix weekend, before teams finally agreed to a ban on the concept.
July 22nd, 2012
German Grand Prix race stewards have decided to take no further action against Red Bull over torque map irregularities . The stewards stated that, while they did not accept all of Red Bull’s arguments, there was no infringement of Article 5.5.3 of the technical regulations
July 12th, 2012

April 30th, 2012
The Citroen team has admitted it finds the decision to exclude Mikko Hirvonen’s car from the Rally of Portugal results for a second time ‘strange.’ Hirvonen’s winning DS3 WRC was excluded for a problem with the car’s clutch, but there was a secondary issue regarding the turbocharger, which the Rally of Portugal stewards confirmed was also an excludable offence last week. The size of the turbine wheel in the turbo was found to be outsize the permitted tolerances. “This is a strange decision,” said Laurent Fregosi, Citroen’s deputy technical manager.
March 15th, 2012
Red Bull Racing team principal Christian Horner believes all of Mercedes’ rivals will now be forced to copy its DRS-assisted rear wing F-duct, now that the FIA has confirmed it is happy with the concept. Although some of Mercedes’ rivals were unsure about the legality of the device, which helps boost straight-line speed even more when DRS is activated, the FIA’s Charlie Whiting said on Thursday there were no issues. And Horner, whose Red Bull Racing team is already well advanced in developing its own version, thinks that all teams must now invest in working on similar projects
January 26th, 2012
Caterham technical chief Mike Gascoyne says it’s time for the team to take another step forward this year after finishing as best of the ‘new’ teams in 2011. On Wednesday, the team unveiled its 2012 challenger, the car with which it is hoping to fight in the midfield after finishing in tenth position in the championship last year
January 20th, 2012
The future for the World Rally Championship’s controversial superally regulation has been called into question by FIA president Jean Todt. This week’s Monte Carlo Rally is the first event since 2004 to be running without the regulation, now called Rally 2, which allows crews who have retired to return to the rally on the following day with the possibility of still scoring points.

Nick Yelloly has extended his deal with Formula Renault 3.5 squad Pons Racing to include this weekend’s Paul Ricard round. In an impressive Formula Renault 3.5 debut at Silverstone in August, Yelloly shone throughout practice and qualifying before claiming sixth on the road in race one. The Pons car was subsequently disqualified when it was found to be short of the regulation fuel load in post-race technical checks, owing to a suspected faulty fuel machine.

Pons Racing’s Nick Yelloly has been disqualified from sixth place in Saturday afternoon’s opening Formula Renault 3.5 race at Silverstone.

Fernando Alonso insists Ferrari’s pace at the British Grand Prix was real, and nothing to do with the regulation changes introduced there. Alonso took Ferrari’s first win of the season at Silverstone, after outperforming Red Bull duo Sebastian Vettel and Mark Webber.
July 9th, 2011
McLaren boss Martin Whitmarsh admits his team has been hit hard by the regulation changes introduced for this weekend’s British Grand Prix. The Woking-based squad seemed to be one of the most affected by the changes to the blown diffuser rules, with Jenson Button qualifying in fifth over 1.5 seconds off pole position. Team-mate Lewis Hamilton finished down in tenth nearly two seconds off the pace
July 9th, 2011
Fernando Alonso thinks Ferrari’s gains in Silverstone qualifying were due to genuine progress with the team’s development efforts, rather than other squads having been pegged back by the FIA’s exhaust rules clampdown. Amid weekend-long controversy at Silverstone over the implementation of the regulation adjustments, Ferrari was tipped by some rivals as a team likely to benefit from the new situation. But Alonso said the 0.117-second gap to pole position was just because the Italian squad was catching Red Bull
