Toyota turned down an approach from one of F1's new teams to sell the rights to its car design.

It was reported last week that the completed TF110 was for sale, but an official of the Japanese outfit declined to comment.

The Swiss publication Blick reports that a new team made an approach about buying Toyota's 2009 single seater, but the "enquiry was rejected".

Blick speculated that the identity of the enquiring team may have been Lotus.
