reliability of Toyota Engines

Post by amoljoshi » 07 Oct 2009, 19:51

Just a though guys.

I have never seen a Toyota engine fail this season. So is that because they have got a very good engine? Or it is just that the cars of Toyota and Williams are just not quick enough to use the full engine power.

:O

Toyota engines are reliable, with regard to power generation i believe they are quite good. If not Toyota & Willams wouldn't be able to challenge for podium as they did in Singapore and Suzuka. We should also not forget the fact that during the first half the Toyota campaign looked very promising. But the second half they seem to be scrapping the bottom of the barrel. I guess what Toyota lacks is aerodynamics. Internally the management also seems to have got something wrong. For example both the Japanese teams weren't any good in performing. Honda and Toyota both spent a lot of time with no good results to show for. While Redbull & BMW Sauber, spent 3 or 4 years and then they were up there competing with Mclaren & Ferrari.
