Toro Rosso: More ambitious for 2013

2013-01-02 11:49

MORE ASSERTIVE TORO ROSSO?: Toro Rosso Driver Daniel Ricciardo believes the team's 2013 F1 contender's will be vastly different to the 2012 cars.

MONZA, Italy - The 2013 Toro Rosso Formula 1 cars will be "very different" to those 2012, driver Daniel Ricciardo has revealed.

Ricciardo and his team mate Jean-Eric Vergne finished 18 and 17 consecutively in the 2012 season. The team finished ahead only of the sport's three newest teams in the Constructors' standings.

Ricciardo has acknowledged that he will be under pressure to improve in 2013.

'I WASN'T AGGRESSIVE ENOUGH'

He said: "I'm aware of that, and I know that my targets in 2013 will have to be more ambitious. My Achille's heel is that in 2012, in the first part of the season, I wasn't aggressive enough in the races.  In some aspects I was the opposite of Grosjean."

Another crucial element, Ricciardo admitted, was a better Toro Rosso single seater: "I have already seen the new car.  When you examine it more closely, it is very different to the old one.

"I believe that it is better.  In any case, it's not one of those cars that looks a total copy of the last one, as though nothing has changed."
