Issue 49 - September/October 2010
This issue contains the most detailed technical article ever published on a current F1 engine.
This is a 16 page article covering all aspects of the Toyota Formula One engine in a level of detail you will have never experienced before.
We have been given unprecedented access to the engine with the full co-operation of the entire technical team.
Remember that this remains a competitive homologated Formula One engine that could be used by a private team next year or in 2012, before new regulations come on stream. Toyota has not ruled out a customer engine supply, and it still has the facilities in Cologne to support this.
