Who is going to run Toyota?
The implication is that there is a group of people who are used to working together and may be employed at the moment by one of the existing F1 teams.
The news, if confirmed, is very good for Toyota which to date has seemed to think that it can do the job itself with its old staff from the Toyota rally and sportscar teams. It seems, however, that wiser counsel has prevailed and that the team is recruiting. Basing the team in Cologne is not perfect but it is not impossible to operate from there, although winning will be another matter.
