The 2003 season Toyota Formula 1 car has been presented yesterday.

Hmm, is there anything Japanese about this car, except for the brandname and the financing?

Well, the Ferrari-team is still based in Italy and the cars and engines are build at the Ferrari factory. They also have their own testing circuit there.

The Toyota F1 team, on the other hand, are based in Germany. The cars are not build by Toyota themselves and neither are the engines. Aside from some of the management staff, there's not much Japanese involvement in the team.

I was just being nasty, Peter, as I'm one of these persons who do not view F-1 as sports.

I totally have to agree with you on that. I've been losing interest more and more the last few years.
