Jarno Trulli has said that there is still a lot to come from the Toyota this season, even though to date the TF107 has proved to be a bit of a disappointment.

Trulli and team-mate, Ralf Schumacher have both struggled and while Jarno has managed to score 7 points, thanks largely to three points finishes in succession at the start of the year, his best result is a sixth place finish notched up at the United States Grand Prix in mid-June.

"We have made quite good progress [as the year has gone on] and we have proved it with some good performances. We are getting closer to the top teams, even if circumstances in the last few races haven't really shown that fully," he told Bridgestone's latest Racing all over the World Formula 1 podcast recently.

"I am pretty happy with the way the team is performing now and how it is improving. There is a lot to come still for the rest of the season and we just have to carry on pushing."

Pressed on what the Cologne-based operation can do during the remainder of the year though, Trulli was reluctant to make any sort of prophecy.

"It is always difficult to make any prediction but we believe we can improve from where we are," he explained. "We have to get the best out of the car. We need to improve our performance and I am sure that by the end of the season we will get closer to the top."

As for beyond 2007 however, Jarno has a very clear target: "I really want to give Toyota their first victory in Formula 1," he added. "I have given them the first pole and the first podium and so I am really looking forward. I want to try and get the first win as soon as possible and then eventually the championship.

"There is a lot of potential here. We have great resources and I think we can do the job. I am only 33 years old. I feel very young. I still have a lot to give to Formula 1 - and to receive from Formula 1," he summed-up.
