hot from the news stands..
toyota it is.. at a near $10 million annual retainer

i think its a good move.. for all the same reasons why ralf moved as well

they will be in the best position to challenge ferrari..
what is needed now is muscle power.. finances.. all of which toyota have at their disposal.. a matter of time till they start to challenge for race wins..

best of luck to Jarno !

Not a bad move. It won't be too long before Toyota becomes a competitive team.

they'r the 'youngest' team in F1.. they arrived only in 2002
and they built their car from scratch..

i wud give it 2 seasons before they start challenging for race wins..
i'm sure they'l spend what it takes to win the championship in the coming yrs
