Illustration for article titled The STR10 Has a NACA Duct Inside its Sidepod

I never really liked the Scuderia Toro Rosso team in the past years as I thought they were just a dumbed-down less-budgeted junior team to their bigger brother, Red Bull. However, this freaking awesome NACA duct spotted by Mario Keszeli at the STR10's launch proves the team are still in-it-to-win-it, or at least prove that a good deal of great minds, innovators, and extraordinary engineers are being funneled to Milton Keynes.


And this is just speculation, but I am guessing this duct is used to cool the plethora of electronics that are placed around the edge of the sidepods near to the floor, but we'll have to wait a few days till testing and somebody catches a picture of an undressed Toro Rosso to find out.
