SCUDERIA TORO ROSSO BREAKS LOOSE IN BARCELONA

Red Bull's new Formula One team, Scuderia Toro Rosso began its charge today. Making its first official outing on the opening day of a three-day test in Barcelona, the team took to the racetrack as Scuderia Toro Rosso for the very first time.

Running a restricted-V10 Cosworth powered RB1 with Michelin tyres, the team completed 325km of testing, as it began to develop its technology ahead of 2006. Although the team's livery and its 2006 chassis is yet to be revealed, the test gave the team its first chance to experiment with the technical set up of the current RB1 and observe how it handled on the track.

Despite low ambient temperatures of between 5°C and 16°C, the team and drivers gained valuable data and experience during the day's testing. Italian Tonio Liuzzi completed driving duties today and is set to continue tomorrow, while young American driver Scott Speed will take over for the final day.
