Toro Rosso are the latest F1 team to unveil their new car ahead of the 2014 season - although with not quite the reception they were expecting.
As teams gathered in Jerez for the first pre-season test session, the STR9 was presented by the team's drivers, Jean-Eric Vergne and Daniil Kvyat, in the pitlane at the Spanish circuit.
With livery following a similar format to recent years, the STR9 featured a very narrow nose similar to McLaren's, and it wasn't long before the wags on Twitter took aim.
Compared to the others, the STR9 is a bit Errol Flynn, if you get my drift. pic.twitter.com/EqGnHy10gL— Grand Prix Diary (@GrandPrixDiary) January 27, 2014
