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.

After that reception, who knows what Red Bull, Mercedes, Williams, Caterham and Marussia will thrust on everyone come Tuesday.
