That's an interesting point, Williams have come on leaps and bounds since the traction control ban. Toyota have looked quick at times as well has to be some sort of relation between the two as they use the same engine. Could be that this engine coupled with a well balanced chassis with string aerodynamics will result in a race winning car.

tf108's older brothers the tf106 and ESPECIALLY the tf107 brought shame to japanese honor, the tf108 is about to surprise never ever have i heard toyota excited about a season every year they been moaning even in 2005


toyota is lacking in power, its apparent mid table in terms of power according to roseberg

but every other aspect of this engine is awesome

lthe lightest, smallest, most compact, most fuel efficient most drivable engine in f1

without traction control this engine is heading upwards

nakajima said he cant tell the diffrence between traction contron and no traction control

roseberg: the engine is so drivable you dont need traction control

today trulli: I don't care about losing traction control, I don't care about losing engine braking. This year the car is completely different and we can overcome these problems easily whereas with last year's car we were just stuck in a corner.


seems like the ban of traction control made williams and toyota the biggest winner and a sudden turn of pace by both teams

I know you have a hard-on for Toyota, but the engine is not the lightest, smallest or most compact. The rules see to that.

And how exactly are they sandbagging if they set the fastest time at a test?

Toyota might impress in first few grand prixs but I don't they can continue to hold their their advantage over other teams through out all season long.

I'm very interested in seeing how both Williams and Toyota fare in Australia. Overall, I think Williams has built a better car and will produce better results. During these test sessions, both their drivers have shown good speed in all types of conditions. However, with Toyota, only Trulli has seems to get the most out of their chassis.

Seems like you're having a w*ank over Toyota.

Anyway, they obviously have reason to be optimistic and I do believe they will be the surprise package of the season. In the hands of Trulli that is. It seems Glock is struggling a bit.

His stint and fastest lap at Barcelona was good. But if were really as good as the impression that they gave (3rd best team not that far behind top 2) then you think he'd be more positive in this interview. The impression from the interview is that Toyota will be in the fight of the group of four (now five) but needs a bit extra to get infront of them. Not much though he said. But if the times are to be believed they should already be well past them. So it's hard to know what to think and if something funny was going on with those times. And yes it could all be mind games, but using that rationale you could twist any drivers comments and make an arguement for them winning the championship.

We'll see.

I certainly wouldn't be surprised to see them move forward. I said at the launch that it was the most sound looking car ever to come out of Toyota and the fact that they are introducing new parts that move them forward rather than to just make the car go at all is a real indicator that they are better off than in previous years.

I'm not expecting miracles though. There are a heck of a lot of teams making the same strides.
