    looks like an evolution of what they had last year i will try to find some more pictures of it and give a little bit more detail on it. One thing to remember even though Renaults designer moved over to toyota for 04 he did not have a lot of input for the 04 car. look for radical changes in 05.

    Gosh, I hope they're gonna be more successful in the future. I always applaud a car manufacturer who has the gutts to enter F1 and build the entire car.

    And the F2003-GA at launch last year. A few small detail differences but not a whole lot. I would have expected the Toyota wing to be more refined looking than what they have shown.

    Another thing i have noticed is the fact that the Toyota does not have the barge boards mounted up. On the side pods the Ferrari pods look a little bit more refined and detailed than the Toyota.

    If you look where the "Vodafone" logo is on the F2003-GA that section extende further up on the tub versus what the Toyota does.

    Again to compair here is a side view of the F2003-GA at launch last year. One thing that really sticks out is the fact that Toyotas wheels look like the ones the Ferrari are using.

    IMHO the car while it looks like a F2003-GA there is several areas that do not look as refined as last years Ferrari. About the only item that will help Toyota is the fact that they do have Michelin tires and a strong end of the last season to go off of. At best i still feel that they will be perhaps only 6th place in the constructors championship this season.

    Toyota's target for 2004 is to reach the podium at least once.

    For 2005 rumours have it, that DC will join the team.
