The Toro Rosso STR3 is a Formula One car which Scuderia Toro Rosso used in the 2008 Formula One season. It was launched on 16 April 2008 at the Circuit de Catalunya, two weeks before the Spanish Grand Prix was held at the same circuit. However, the car did not compete in the 2008 Formula One season until the Monaco Grand Prix, driven by Sébastien Bourdais and Sebastian Vettel.


The STR3 made its racing début at the 2008 Monaco Grand Prix, driven by Sébastien Bourdais and Sebastian Vettel (pictured).
