Jarno TruliAs reported on Reuters

“Whoever drives for them will have a big advantage,” the Italian told the Gazzetta dello Sport newspaper on Tuesday. “I don’t think the departure of Schumacher or (technical director Ross) Brawn will change much. Even (Felipe) Massa can win with the current Ferrari.”

“We [Toyota] suffered from the switch from Michelin tyres to Bridgestone,” said Trulli, who signed a new three-year contract this season. “And then there were reliability problems. I believe in Toyota’s potential but we need to quicken our step.”

As far as Ferrari goes, that is what everyone is hoping and looking forward to. We also know that Toyota has the potential, but given their current form, they really need something extraordinary to come in top three positions.

Fernando AlonsoAs reported on autosport.com

In a 45-minute meeting at the Shanghai circuit on Friday evening, the GPDA went ahead with nominating the board that they wished to represent them for the next 12 months. It was agreed that Alonso, Webber and Ralf Schumacher will become directors, with the Toyota driver also becoming the new chairman to replace David Coulthard. The former directors of the GPDA were Coulthard, Michael Schumacher and Jarno Trulli.

It is understood that Schumacher’s stepping down from the GPDA, because of his imminent retirement, was a key factor in convincing Alonso to get involved.

One world champion giving way for another world champion ! That’s what bringing in new blood is all about. We hope that these guys will carry forward the good work others have been doing.
