Goodbye Minardi, hello Squadra Toro Rosso

NEWS STORY
14/10/2005

Austrian newspaper Salzburger Nachrichten reports that the Minardi F1 team, recently purchased by Red Bull, will be renamed Squadra Toro Rosso in 2006.

The newspapers also confirms recent speculation in the media that BMW's Franz Tost will be taking the helm, though this has yet to be officially confirmed by the Austrian company.

There is still no official news as to who will drive the Squadra Toro Rosso cars, though Scott Speed and Tonio Liuzzi remain the most likely.

This weekend, Minardi is one of several team names that will disappear from the F1 grid, having contested 340 Grands Prix (including this weekend's Chinese race) since it first entered F1 in 1985.
