It would have been easy to get buried by Trulli's initial performance advantage last year but impressively he kept at it and turned it around. Although having a fairly low key start on his F1 return, by the middle of 2008 he was firmly in his stride.

He bounced back from a sizeable accident at the German Grand Prix to take a brilliant second place in Hungary, and he will be looking to start the year with similar levels of performance now that Toyota appears to have produced a quick car.
