The Toro Rosso STR7 was a car designed by Scuderia Toro Rosso for the 2012 Formula One season. It was driven by new drivers Daniel Ricciardo and Jean-Éric Vergne, after the team decided not to renew former drivers Sébastien Buemi and Jaime Alguersuari's contracts.
The STR7 was promising in the first two races, with Ricciardo finishing 9th at the Australian Grand Prix and Vergne finishing 8th at the Malaysian Grand Prix, but the car was uncompetitive throughout the season, not being a regular points-scoring car. The STR7 would be upgraded for the Belgian Grand Prix, and the car showed improvements throughout the second half, scoring a total of 20 points.
Toro Rosso finished their season in 9th with 26 points in the Constructors' Championship.
