Scuderia Toro Rosso Team Principal Franz Tost has not ruled out the possibility that the Faenza based outfit could become a ‘works’ manufacturer in the future.

The team are currently supplied by Renault Sport F1 and it is understood that the French manufacturer are looking at their participation in the sport and are looking to increase their marketing potential within the sport this could include branding the Toro Rosso in yellow.

Renault Sport F1 Managing Director Cyril Abiteboul has stated however that right now the company are concentrating on the reliability of the Renault power unit and not on painting a car yellow.

Renault have also stated that they are in Formula One for the long haul. Tost has also revealed that in future it is the plan that Scuderia Toro Rosso will become a full manufacturer in the future but that for now they are concentrating on finishing the championship in fifth place and that it is up to Renault and Red Bull to decide what the next step will be.
