Toyota won't join WRC in 2015

"Toyota would like to come back to the WRC, but it is difficult to give a concrete timing to this," said Akio Toyoda, who went on to encourage fans to let him know what they want.

"I said the same thing two years ago, but the distance is gradually getting closer.

"I would like to hear messages that fans want Toyota to challenge the WRC again.

"Then, the distance might be even closer. Personally I would like to see a Japanese manufacturer compete in the WRC again."

"My aim is to create better cars. If there are roads like that in the world and those roads 'create' cars, I would love to compete in the WRC if there is such an opportunity."
