• New F1 news post on CarEnvy: Island Nation of Japan, Exit Stage Right Yep, you read that right. With Toyota’s formal exit from F1, Kazuki Nakajima’s likely dismissal due to lackluster performances this year, Bridgestone’s exit last week, and brilliant newcomer Kamui Kobayashi’s uncertain future—we may be short an entire country that had previously been integral to F1. Toyota’s withdrawal also took with it the only Japanese sponsors in the sport as well. Oh, and lest I forget to mention, Renault may bow out too before 2010? What a week it’s been.
