Toro Rosso’s all new driver line-up of Max Verstappen and Carlos Sainz have unveiled the team’s 2015 car in the pit lane in Jerez.

Verstappen and Sainz took the wraps from the Renault-powered STR10 ahead of the first day of pre-season testing at the circuit on Sunday.

Toro Rosso is the only team set to field an all-rookie driver pairing in 2015, with 17-year-old Verstappen becoming the youngest driver in the history of the sport, having spent just one year single-seater racing.

Sainz, meanwhile, steps up to Formula 1 having claimed last year’s Formula Renault 3.5 Series.

"The 2015 season is a new challenge for all of us," said Team Principal Franz Tost. "We’ve put a lot of work into the STR10 and we are convinced that we will have a successful year. Our objective is to finish fifth in the constructors championship and we are ready to do our best to achieve it.

"Our engine partner Renault has also worked very hard to come up with new modifications and I’m sure that our joint effort will give us a package which will certainly be very competitive. All in all, we have a much stronger team as well as a very competitive STR10 and fast drivers; it’s a great combination.

"Another point that also makes me happy is that we have a very high-skilled young driver pairing which makes this season even more exciting. They both showed fantastic performances throughout their career, winning races and championships, and it’s because of their driving skills that Red Bull has decided to bring them to Scuderia Toro Rosso. I’m really sure that they are very well prepared for this challenge, as is the rest of the team. We are ready for it!"
