For all those who think Toyota is going to excel this time, I'd say keep your expectations low.
Thats one team which runs a racing out fit like a corporate center and if Mike Gascoyne can be trusted, Toyota will have to rethink their F1 strategy to start winning races.
They have the biggest budget in F1, no doubt, but how they manage to squander it without turning consistent results is beyond me.

Toyota debut unique nose in Bahrain

Run on the TF107 steered by Jarno Trulli, the solution uniquely attaches the upper element of the front wing to the tip of the nose.

It is understood that the innovation was tested in the hope that it be raced in the season opening Australian grand prix to cure a fundamental understeer problem.

Appearing to extend the original thinking of Williams, Renault and Ferrari, the nose was tested last week alongside the more conventional solution, which was also fitted to the launch-version of the car.

A really different looking car from Honda this time which aims to help promote saving the environment. Its pretty surprising that their sponsers agreed to this though.

Also by logging onto myearthdream.com | coming soon , you can get your name onto the car.

A refreshing concept finally. In a field full of F1 cars stickered upto the teeth with sponsor logos, this is quite a change. Seems Honda has really gone green and convinced the corporates to tag along too! Good job.

I still feel the car filled with sponsor logos looks better.
