Toyota bosses expect team to shine in Valencia
With the month-long break nearly over, Toyota heads for the Spanish city of Valencia and this season's European Grand Prix. Both of the team's drivers finished in the points in 2008, with Jarno Trulli taking fifth place while Timo Glock finished in seventh position.

If last
year's car did well on the very fast-paced harbourside track, Toyota is hoping the current TF109 contender's better rate of performance will allow for higher results.

However the Valencia venue's characteristics are somewhat different from what is expected at a street circuit and its demands require a unique approach, as explains Pascal Vasselon, the Senior General Manager Chassis at Toyota.

"Valencia is by definition a street circuit as the track is based on public roads but in many ways it is different to more typical street circuits like Monaco or Singapore," he began. "It is a relatively high-speed track with very long straights; therefore the aerodynamic efficiency requirements are completely different to other street tracks. Unlike Monaco or Singapore, you are not aiming for high downforce.

"And it is extremely tough on brakes," Vasselon added. "But in other ways it is still recognisably a street circuit as the barriers are quite close so there is little margin for error."

From a technical standpoint, the Toyota team believes the TF109 configuration will allow Trulli and Glock to find themselves amongst the most competitive racers this weekend.

"We are confident for this Grand Prix because the circuit corresponds to what appears to be the best aerodynamic efficiency window for our car and we went well there last year," Vasselon said. "So we are really looking forward to racing again after the summer break and we expect a positive result."

Toyota Motorsport President John Howett insists the day of his team's maiden Formula One victory is not far off: "I believe we are closer than ever to doing that.

"This is a team effort and everyone is working flat-out together to fulfil the huge potential of the TF109," he said. "We'll see how the rest of the season goes but we have the passion and dedication to win this year."
