i voted for toyota..
red bull have started the season really well.. but i dont expect them to be able to sustain the level of performance they have shown..
their budget does not permit it

I voted Toyota..
they were nowhere till last season. This year all the pieces have fallen together...boatloads of money (as always), Mike Gascoyne as director, 2 good drivers (Trulli especially in great form since last year and hungry to prove Flavio wrong!) and most importantly the rule changes (1 tyre + engine + less aero ) have all helped them improve...

Toyota, from being nowhere to being a regular fixture on the podium....

McLaren would be a close runner up considering the improvement from last season to this season. But then they did appear on the podium a couple of times last year including a top step at SPA.

I think its got to be the Toyota team, they were nowhere with all that budget and suddenly they surprised everyone with their performance and podiums finishes and also Jarno is doing great job for the team. Hats off to them. Red Bull comes close second. Also heard that BMW is planning to buy Sauber team and Williams to will have a contract with Toyota for engines but will be called Willims-Lexus, looks interesting.

It has to be Toyota team for sure, they were nowhere with that huge budget and all of a sudden they surprised every one with their performance and podiums finishes. Jarno Trulli and Ricardo Zonta are doing great work for the team. Hats off to them. Also heard that BMW is planning to buy Sauber team and so Williams will have Toyota engines but under Lexus brand name , so might be called Williams-Lexus.

BMW are supplying engines to sauber for next season..
the buyout has only been a rumour so far
toyota will not supply engines to a top team.. i'm pretty sure of that

BMW had made things very clear about their stay in F1. This had been a part of last weeks' Race Day in Star Sports. I really dont see why they would quit F1 that too when they are getting back to where they really belong.I don't see them leaving atleast for the next 2-3 seasons.
