Toyota president disappointed with Marmorini’s departure

As recently reported, Toyota's engine chief Luca Marmorini has left the team in pursuit of more challenging obstacles, since F1 has been lacking engine development for a few years now, and will continue to do so for a few more. But team president John Howett is deeply feeling the loss of their decade long partnership.

Howett shared with the official F1 site: "Personally, I am very sad that he left. I think that he was frustrated on the one hand that there was really no opportunity for engine development, and also probably didn't agree with some of the strategic decisions – probably our more conservative approach to KERS. "

Marmorini's position in the engine department is to be taken over by Kazuo Takeuchi, who Howett describes as a "an absolute racer."
