The Honda powered STR14 will be driven by Russia's Daniil Kvyat, who makes his return to Formula One, and rookie Alexander Albon of Thailand.

Kvyat, 24, was dropped by Toro Rosso and their owners Red Bull in 2017 and spent 2018 with Ferrari as a development driver.

He was nicknamed 'Torpedo' after Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel complained at the 2016 Chinese Grand Prix that the Russian tried to overtake him on the inside 'like a torpedo', causing a collision.

Kvyat was at Red Bull in 2015 and part of 2016, the youngster was sent back to Toro Rosso after that year's Russian Grand Prix following another clash with Vettel.

Kvyat will be joined by British-born Thai racer Albon.

The 22-year-old finished third in the 2018 Formula Two championship.

Toro Rosso, who finished ninth in the constructors' championship last season, will test the STR14 at the pre-season testing in Barcelona February 18-21.
