It seems to be genuine.

Private teams can run Toyota cars and then take sponsorship money from anybody they please.

But rarely do they put competing products on their cars.

there could be no conflict of interest here as mahindra is advertising under the name of Mahindra Tractors. But who knows, maybe that is the first step that they need to make a name up there!!
