    Toyota to pull out? New speculation

    Post by Ross on 22nd December 2008, 06:21

    Toyota have today revealed that they will be recording their first ever profit loss as they, like other car manufacturers, battle on through the current financial struggle.

    See the full news story here...

    This revelation has lead to further rumours and speculation that the team could decide to follow their fellow Japanese rivals Honda, and withdraw from Formula One.

    So, once more, we discuss whether we think they will be withdrawing.

    I personally don't think they do before the 2009 season, but I can see them pulling out if the car isn't competitive, even if they do it mid-season. I can't see Toyota on the 2010 grid.

    Bye bye Toytowcar. I was lead to believe they would pull from F1 in 2010 now Honda have gone and this news seems to back up that rumour.

    I'm a bit of a toyboata fan, especially when Trulli accidentally ran wide at Fuji to let Lewis win the championship :p

    It will be a shame to see them go Sad
