After todays result Toyota remains, next to Force India, the only team that never won a Grand Prix.
In a bit of different perspective (long employed team members) Force India is succesor of Jordan, so it makes Toyota the last "workshop" to win a Grand Prix.
While Toyota was a dissapointment for many years, considering the budget available, now in 2009 they do have a more than decent car. And more than decent driver line up.
A year that Honda wants to forget words "how we managed our F1 involvement" it would be perfect time to win a Grand Prix.
Hell, what a more right place to do that than Honda's Suzuka circuit?
But I hope they won't wait that long.
I was never a special fan of theirs, but at least to encourage them to stay in the sport... Come on, Toyota. You can do that.
Ferrari, McLaren, BMW, Renault...they all did mess up with their 2009 machines. This is your chance!
Come on, Toyota!

Bahrain will be a good place to try. It will be dry all weekend so there won't be any random chaos interrupting things. They're one of the few teams that tested there during the winter, certainly one of the only teams with a semi-competitive car, and it should suit their supposed pace on long runs. Enough to fight Brawn and Red Bull? Dunno. But they could be this year's BMW Sauber.

Yea, we need a dry race on a permanent track without safety cars so we can see the true performance of the field. Bahrain is a perfect for this, so they'll need to prove themselves although the 2 Brawns will surely be hard to catch.
