This news put into focus what Toyota can achieve when they put their mind to it. So like I told swamp in the IS-F thread

If the IS-F isn't quite as good as the M3 at everything they won't just pack their bags and go home, they will fine-tune it until it is as good if not better and by this I don't mean when a new model is launched.

All I am saying is don't count your chicken that the IS-F would be on top sooner than you think.
The world's biggest motoring manufacturer didn't get there by being second all the time.
