Toyota Team May Leave F1 If Season Unsuccessful

toyota-tf109-4The Toyota F1 team may follow fellow Japanese car company Honda and drop out of Formula One if their 2009 campaign is unsuccessful. Toyota is the big team with little results and the incoming Toyota president, Akio Toyoda, is expected to cut costs at the company when he takes control. A Formula One team is huge expense for any company. While a successful team reflects positively upon the brand, a poor-performing team is costly and doesn’t provide enough positive exposure to justify the expense. It looks like Toyota will need to win their first race this season to ensure they continue to race in Formula One.
