Toyota is the latest team to add its seal of approval to the new regulations set out by the FIA yesterday. Eddie Jordan, BAR's David Richards and Minardi's Paul Stoddart are bosses who have already voiced their support of the changes.

FIA president Max Mosley said the new rules had met with initial shock but little dissent. Toyota released a statement today saying the following:

"Toyota supports and appreciates any FIA initiatives aimed at reducing costs, increasing the safety and improving the excitement for spectators of the Formula One."

"In absence of an agreement between the teams, Toyota welcomes the proposal received yesterday from the FIA and will attend the meeting of the Technical Working Group in London on January 17, with the intent to positively contribute to the definition of the detailed rules."

"Toyota expects the FIA to be open-minded and accept constructive proposals from the teams aimed to reduce costs, with no compromise for the drivers safety."
