With their launch of the TF105, Toyota became the first team to showcase their 2005 Formula One challenger. As with every F1 launch, it came with the usual F1 pomp, circumstance, spending of  ridiculous sums of money, and who could forget the "2005 will be Toyota's most competitive season to date" and "victory is our ultimate goal," standard party line. The TF105 will be the the first Toyota to bear the full influence of technical director, Mike Gascoyne as he hopes to bring the the same success he brought Renault. The duo of Ralf Schumacher and Jarno Trulli will pilot the new Toyota, and Schumacher Jr. will no doubt hope to replicate his brother's success at Ferrari. But I wouldn't be holding my breath that he'll do so.
