Trulli tips Toyota to stay quick
Jarno Trulli
Jarno Trulli has tipped Toyota to maintain their good start to the season when Formula One resumes in San Marino.

The Italian came second in Malaysia and Bahrain to give Toyota their best start since joining the circuit in 2002.

"I don't see why we cannot keep this pace up, although historically Imola has not been a happy circuit for the team," said an upbeat Trulli.

"But you solve many problems with a decent aero package and we have made progress in that area."

I never expected to be so competitive so soon - it's a bit of a dream

Trulli, who has scored more points in two races than the team did all last season, admitted his surprise at the turnaround.

"It's honestly a fantastic feeling to have claimed two successive podium places and to have strengthened our second place in the constructors' championship.

"When I signed for Toyota last year I was impressed by the facilities but also mindful that the team had 50 races to its name whereas Ferrari has 50 years experience.

"I never expected to be so competitive so soon. It's a bit of a dream."
