Toro Rosso boss Franz Tost has said that the Italian team is capable of keeping its current fifth place in the Constructors’ Championship, despite the highly competitive nature of the 2017 midfield. So far, the team is only trailing Mercedes, Ferrari, Red Bull and Force India in the standings, having beaten its direct rivals Williams, Renault and Haas F1.
Speaking to GP Gazette, Tost said: “We’re now in fifth place in the championship, and very close with the others as well. That means after each race it could change. But at least we have scored the points. I think we have a package which is quite competitive from the car side, and also from the engine side.
