Toro Rosso might have employed a "more cautious approach" in 2010 than F1's other Ferrari powered teams.

So far this season, several Maranello-built V8s have suffered problems during the Grand Prix weekends, both in the rear of the works cars and also those of the customer team Sauber.

But with a much cleaner bill of engine health in 2010 so far is Toro Rosso, the Faenza based team that has been using Ferrari power for the past four years.

"It is possible that we have adopted a more cautious approach in the way we manage the engines," team boss Franz Tost said on Monday.

"This does not mean we can afford to be complacent as engine failures are always a possibility," he added.
