Toro Rosso has more aerodynamic potential with its 2019 vehicle as a result of its closer relationship with Red Bull this season, according to deputy technical director Jody Egginton.
Red Bull were suitably impressed, following Toro Rosso's lead in switching Renault for Honda power.
While Toro Rosso has changed both its drivers for the upcoming season, the line-up is not entirely new.
Now that Honda is officially supplying two teams, Toro Rosso team manager Graham Watson said the use of its new recruits effectively amounts to "we keep 50% of the Honda personnel who worked with us in 2018, and Red Bull gets the other 50%". In that respect, we're excited to join Toro Rosso and Red Bull Technology. Daniil Kvyat first drove for the team five years ago and is making his return after spending 2018 as one of Ferrari's simulator drivers.
Those "strong young drivers" for 2019 will be Daniil Kvyat and Alexander Albon - and both will doubtless be pleasantly surprised to find themselves in the positions they're in now, given that Kvyat lost his drive with Toro Rosso before the end of the 2017 season, while Alexander Albon was dropped from Red Bull's junior programme all the way back in 2012. "For our partnership with Toro Rosso, that means finishing higher up in the Constructors' Championship, scoring more points, running more reliably and, maybe even repeating last year's Bahrain result or doing better".
Kvyat, who spent a season as a Ferrari development driver previous year, said: "Let's just say it's great to be back and it proves you should never give up hope".
"We don't know exactly where we're going to be", he said. "I believe in the guys in the team. I just want to get in the vehicle and see what happens". "Every year, it was just each race, take it step by step, focus and race in that session - whether it would be practice, qualifying or the race." said Albon.
"My last race was 2017, then I was back a year after, pretty much".
Toro Rosso's Daniil Kvyat says he wants to "let my driving" do the talking, rather than answer any questions about his personal growth during his absence from Formula 1.
