Whats up with the Lexus Academy Europe deal? Alex Wurz is the lead driver of the new TS030 Hybrid LMP1 car. Maybe he's going to be apart of more Toyota/Lexus type projects besides racing.

Apples to oranges much???

He is talking about LFA as a road street-legal car driven on the race track. Why would he compare it to an F1 racing car?? Though, LFA is probably the closest car to an F1 racing car out today, it has absolutely nothing to do with whether he drives an F1 racing car for his job or not since he cannot drive the F1 racing car intended for his employment on the roads or take it to the track on weekends.

There is more to a car than just pure speed/handling. It's nice to drive something else for once a while for a change, even if it's slower/heavier.

He doesn't drive F1 cars anymore. He drives Toyota's new TS030 Hyrbid LMP1!
