Scuderia Toro Rosso has confirmed it will launch its new Honda-powered Formula 1 car, the STR13, on the morning of the first day of pre-season testing in Barcelona.

Toro Rosso will link up with Japanese manufacturer Honda from 2018 following an exchange in engine deals with McLaren, resulting in Renault moving in the opposite direction.

The new Toro Rosso-Honda will be revealed on February 26 on the morning of the first day of testing at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya, with running set to kick off at 9am local time.

Toro Rosso will enter the new season with an unchanged line-up from the end of last year, with Pierre Gasly and Brendon Hartley returning.

The team will be aiming to improve on its seventh-place finish in the constructors' championship last year, having lost out to midfield rival Renault at the final race of the season.
