US-based Haas have led on this approach since 2016 and Toro Rosso see it as a way to better use resources.

The senior Red Bull team will also be powered by Honda this year, opening up more opportunities for Toro Rosso to share certain parts under the FIA's "listed parts" regulations.

Their 2018 campaign was heavily compromised by grid penalties - no team took more than Toro Rosso - but there was also marked improvement in the Honda power unit towards the end of the season. The Englishman is expected to start work at his new team later this year. It will not make Toro Rosso into a championship victor, but it should make it a stronger midfielder. Following on from the Haas release last week, the new auto showcases the 2019 regulation changes that include a simplified front wing and larger rear wing, as well as tweaks to the brake ducts.

After the loss of technical director James Key to McLaren, Toro Rosso has made a decision to form a stronger partnership with its parent company Red Bull.

Kvyat once drove for Red Bull Racing itself, where he managed two podiums and a fastest lap during Red Bull's least competitive years in the last decade.

Red Bull-owned Toro Rosso act as a feeder team to former champions Red Bull Racing, both of whose drivers Max Verstappen and Pierre Gasly graduated from Tost's outfit.

VanVleet is averaging 10.5 points, 4.6 assists, 2.7 rebounds and 26.8 minutes in 51 games (22 starts) this season. Everyone competes in this league, but I think there is a pocket of guys that go above and beyond that.

Tost said: "Daniil showed his natural speed from the very beginning".

"We don't know exactly where we're going to be", he said.

"He had to live through a hard time when he joined us again in 2016 - it was psychologically tough, but no one has ever doubted his driving skills".

For 2019 Red Bull has joined Toro Rosso in using Honda power, and Tost believes the senior team's involvement will lead to a more efficient use of its own limited resources, having utilised several 2018-spec Red Bull components on its new auto.

Kvyat, who spent a season as a Ferrari development driver a year ago, said: "Let's just say it's great to be back and it proves you should never give up hope". I know there's been a lot of speculation about this and whether I've matured or not and so on, but I prefer to let my driving on the track answer. "I can see that, and it gives me confidence for the future". The Russian will be partnered by Thai driver Alexander Albon, who steps up after finishing third in last year's Formula 2 championship behind George Russell and Lando Norris.

He added: "I never set any goals on anything".
