Top 10 Formula 1 Car Launches

  1. Toyota’s horror movie (2009)

With grandiose launch events becoming old hat by the late Noughties, Toyota decided to try something different to unveil the TF109 in 2009. So it made this very strange horror movie trailer, starring the new car, drivers Jarno Trulli and Timo Glock, and reserve driver Kamui Kobayashi as The Creepy Hand in the Lift. Sadly for Toyota, the baritone narrator’s assertion that “it’s time to win” went entirely unheeded. The car scored five podium finishes and ended up fifth in the constructors’ title race. By the end of the season the manufacturer was so fed up with F1 that it left and never came back.
