Mar.13 (GMM) Jarno Trulli has poured cold water on speculation that Toyota could be set to spring a major surprise on the F1 world when the action kicks off at Albert Park this weekend.
The Italian ended the final day of the last group winter test at Barcelona recently with the quickest time, but he denies that his TF108 is ready to lead the field at grands prix."McLaren and Ferrari are in another world," he told the local Herald Sun while testing a 'Trulli' go-kart near the Albert Park circuit.Trulli, 33, said the so-called Big Two outfits will be superior to all comers by "one second a lap, at least, this weekend".He does admit, however, that Toyota has taken a step forward for 2008 compared with its "very bad" car last season."So, for me, the chance of fighting for points is already a good result," Trulli said."Last year the car behaviour is opposite to what I like. But this year, to stay with BMW, I think it's possible," he added.
