Scuderia Toro Rosso is the latest team to pull the covers off its car for the 2015 F1 season, which will be driven by rookies Max Verstappen and Carlos Sainz Jr.

A day before pre-season testing gets underway in Jerez, the Italian team revealed its STR10 in front of the assembled media ahead of what will be its tenth season in the top flight.

The car will be driven by a much publicised all-rookie line-up, most notably Verstappen, who will become the youngest driver to start an F1 race at 17 when he makes his debut in Australia.

The Dutchman, who joins the team after just a single season of car racing, did enough to impress during his European F3 campaign to attract interest in the upper echelons of the sport.

Sainz, meanwhile, steps up to F1 after clinching the 2014 Formula Renault 3.5 Championship, the Spaniard becoming the latest Red Bull-backed driver to compete in Toro Rosso colours.

The car itself features a flatter nose that will be seen across much of the grid in 2015, while the livery doesn't stray far from Toro Rosso's previous incarnations.

"I am convinced the STR10 will be the best car we have ever built at Toro Rosso because the team around our technical director James Key have really but in a lot of effort, time and money for new solutions, special designs and the car looks clean. If a car looks clean and beautiful then it will be fast.

"We have been working closely with Renault and they have done a really good job over the winter months and deliver the complete that I am convinced will be really competitive."

The STR10 will get its first run with Sainz at the wheel, before Verstappen gets his maiden outing on Monday.
