“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.
