After a breakthrough 2008, which resulted in a sensational maiden victory at Monza, Toro Rosso will struggle to match such giddy heights. There was little doubt that the dynamics between driver Sebastian Vettel, a streetwise, savvy team, a Ferrari engine and Adrian Newey's chassis worked perfectly.

There is every chance the STR4 will be better but, with Vettel 'promoted' to Red Bull, it will take time for new boy Sebastien Buemi to find his feet, and Sebastien Bourdais will keep his fingers crossed that the new car doesn't have the characteristics he so loathed in the STR3.
