Toyota: Lets move on


Toyota, one of the first manufacturers to call on Max Mosley to resign following the News of the World's allegation in March, has followed BMW's example and called on F1 to 'move on' following Tuesday's vote of confidence for the FIA President.

A brief statement issued by the Japanese manufacturer today read:

"Toyota Motorsport acknowledges the result of the Extraordinary General Assembly and accepts the decision taken," the Japanese manufacturer said in a statement at the Canadian Grand Prix.

"Now that the FIA (International Automobile Federation) membership has expressed its view we hope that motorsport is able to conduct its activities unhindered by scandal, controversy and negative publicity.

"We also acknowledge and understand the position of the major touring clubs, of which many of our customers are members," added the Germany-based team.

Hours after Tuesday's decision, BMW Motorsport Director Mario Theissen said: "We respect this decision, which was made by the delegates in full knowledge of the facts. It is important now for everyone concerned to turn their undivided attention back to the sport."
