Toyota has reportedly contacted one of the teams on the current grid. Given the initial good understanding, the plan would be to partner as soon as possible and before the new 2026 regulations come into effect, according to reports. RacingNews365.

The return of a proven brand

After having left the competition in 2009, 15 years ago, the manufacturer has reportedly set its sights on Haas to formalise an alliance that would facilitate its return. The agreement would be similar to the one Alfa Romeo had with Sauber and could start next season. The brand does not plan to provide power units, but it could participate in the manufacture of certain components such as the chassis, taking advantage of the wind tunnel they maintain.

Toyota’s ambitions would go beyond being Haas’ sole sponsor, but would also like to collaborate with more teams, which are still unknown. In addition, it cannot be ruled out that this could lead to a stronger alliance in the future, also involving the engine part.

The importance of Toyota

Japanese brands are back, with Honda as Aston Martin’s engine supplier from 2026 and the possibility of the Toyota-Haas project, which represents a major boost to the competition.

After several seasons at the bottom of the table, the team has made a big step forward in recent races and this plan could strengthen its prospects for the future.
