    Default Toyota withdraws from Formula 1

    Is this old news? I don't remember Toyota saying they might pull out, although it was suspected they might after Honda went.

    It's a shame.

    As long as they can fill the grid I prefer to have dedicated racing teams on the grid. Do you buy a Toyota because of their presense in F1 anyway?

    Do Toyota have anything remotely sporty in their line up? The last car I can remember was Supra turbo about 15 years ago.
    Science isn't about why, it's about why not. You ask: why is so much of our science dangerous? I say: why not marry safe science if you love it so much. In fact, why not invent a special safety door that won't hit you in the butt on the way out, because you are fired. - Cave Johnson

    Toyota are about as sporty now as Kia.
