The manor team principal John Booth would be returning to the F1 paddock as he was announced as the director for Toro Rosso.
Booth had left Manor along with the sport director Graeme Lowdon at the end of last season. With immediate effect, he will now take up this position and join his team in the race going to be held in Russia this weekend. Well, this step was taken with an objective to help raise the race for the Italian squad. Franz Tost, the principal of the Toro Rosso team said that he has known Booth for several years and he is more than happy to welcome him to join his team.
Formula 1 has become more complex in terms of performance, especially with the recent changes done in the setup of the car, tyre front, radio communications and so on. Hence it is important to have skilled drivers when you have competitive cars as they both go hand in hand. Franz Tost is confident that John Booth will put in best efforts in raising the game as he has many years of experience in this field and turn out to be an effective power over a weekend race.
Booth is feeling honored to be a part of Schuderia Toro Rosso, which is a competitive and well established team and it’s known to all. The team has achieved a lot within a short span of time and Booth is looking forward to join hands with Franz and get started to support his team in Sochi this weekend. Toro Rosso is in the sixth position currently with 17 points. The team is all geared up to show its performance in Sochi Autodrom and earn victory at its best. With John Booth is being a part of Toro Rosso, things will surely shape up well for the team.
