F1 » Toyota out to end 'positive' year 'on a high' in Abu Dhabi


Jarno Trulli and Kamui Kobayashi - in for the recovering Timo Glock again - bid to give Toyota F1 reason for cheer in the final race of the 2009 campaign, the inaugural Abu Dhabi Grand Prix around the Yas Marina Circuit

Howetts already high if he thinks this year has been positive.

It *looked* positive in pre-season testing and the first free practice, and pretty much went up and down from there, but predominantly down.

Maybe he's expecting Abu Dhani to be like Dubai, which was their peak for the season, in which case expect them to qualify well and then throw it away.

Speaking of high. Jarno and Sutil had another conversation and Jarno is still sure he was in the right when him and Sutil crashed. What part of on the kerbs and grass does jarno not understand. He still blames Sutil for the accident. I put him in the wrong for trying to pass on the kerbs when Sutil slowed for Kimi. Jarno saw what was happening and took a chance. One that did not pay off.

I had the misfortune of having an argument with an Italian once. My half Portuguese background meant I gave as good as I got but how can a waiter defend a six legged bug in my Ceaser salad?

Trulli deep down knows he is wrong. Out of pride he will not admit it!
Sutil should have lumped the tw*t !!

Jarno is bringing pictures to the drivers meeting to discuss further. Like the stewards do not have the same info. Does he realize FIA looked at wreck and did not blame Sutil? He is looking foolish by continuing with the i'm right attitude. he was clearly wrong.

I've said it before, if there was a championship for "feeling positive" and "optimistic" and confident, this team would win that trophy every single year. But unfortunately for them, there isn't one.

yeah yeah, enough of the euro fan boys trashing the japanese teams. You know Brawn used to be Honda guys? The DD Difuser was an idea from one of Super Aguri's people, a Japanese team. These guys are located in Germany, Cologne to be precise. If they had a better driver this year the results would have been a lot better than they were. But of course with the Trulli train and Glock's lame qualifying you arent going to get wins. how many times have these guys won before? Trulli did once, at monaco at renault- Glock? Never. Never even had a pole position either. Suck it up fellas next year with a better driver and Kobayashi gaining some experience- they'll be up in the top 3.
