Autosport reporting that the TS040 has had its shakedown run at Ricard, then 3 days of testing with Wurz and Davidson driving, and according to the Toyota spokesperson, the car has had a "trouble-free" roll-out.

Well, it's most likely corporate talk but if the car really ran trouble free for three days instantly, that would be a good sign.

According to the article they have two other big tests planned, so they arrive to the car's debut much better prepared than with the TS030. With that being said, the car will obviously have a lot less testing mileage on it than its competitors.

They said it was the "best roll out yet". That means no issues is probably true. Taking a bit of time maybe worked in their favor. In 2013 they completed 3 or 4 tests before running the car at Spa. But now they are ahead of that it seems.

Having the most reliable/mature system now(comparing to the sophistication of Audi and Porsche), Toyota surely won't have any teething problems.

More freedom on their supercapacitor as well. Letting that beast loose has to be much better for them and not just on the power side.

They had the 4wd on the Supra HVR which ran in 2007 with the predecesor of this capacitor. Then they tested 4wd in 2012 on the TS030 before the season. Probably still have some data to go on.

Alex Wurz also tweeted he was getting a seat fitting. I assume all drivers are going to be doing this in the coming days since theyll most likely will test next week.

I know that was a joke but doesn't seat fitting usually mean just creating the "mold" for the removable seat?

Edit: yes, something like that: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tGzoOUoCOlk

No idea about that. But in Porsche's teasers, seat fitting was carried out during the construction of tub, pretty early phase of development.

Not a mold...

Single seater seats are normaly done with poliurethan, putting that into a big bag and letting it to expand around the driver.

i don't know about sports car though.

Wurz said he was getting a 'further fitting', which I take to mean that he's already had at least one done but obviously didn't like it.
