Toro Rosso's lower-hooped T-Wing, first seen in Baku, features its own reverse swan-neck support and seems oddly angled down - which is likely done in order to work the rear wing harder. A pitot tube has been mounted ahead of the endplate louvres too, as the designers look for more data on their behaviour.
