It is a must watch if you get the chance to see it.
    The TGR documentary is on motorsport tv now. It’s still amazing to see how bold Mr. Toyoda was, trusting Makinen to carry on the project in a remote Finn village, and how focused and competent the new team staff was, managing to build a winning car on such a short time. The doc also shows Lehtinen major role in the team building process; he’ll for sure be missed, if his departure really happens.

    Just before Finland, design chief Tom Fowler was out. Only to be in again the next day. And now sporting director Jarmo Mahonen is waving farewell. The grapevine’s had this former co-driver in and out on more than on occasion in the last 12 months, but his exit looks certain post-Deutschland.

    'Lehtinen', not 'Mahonen'.

    Jarmo Lehtinen explaining the reasons behind his departure from TGR. He claims it's "mostly" due to personal reasons as it's hard for the family when he's travelling 300 days a year. However, he also says that there were "some different opinions" within the team regarding the team's future and his own position as well. Hard to say which played the bigger role in his exit, but one could assume that Lehtinen, with all his experience, knew what kind of job it would be with all the travelling and stuff when he was assigned for the position he's now stepping down from.

    Where do you see it? I'm looking all over motorsport tv (yes the paid version) and I don't see anything. Maybe it's limited to your region?

    We have the international package. They repeated it a couple of times since last Friday and they’re playing it again during next weekend. Btw, the doc is only called ‘TEAM’ https://www.motorstv.com/tv-guide/day/2017-08-19

    By any chance, do you mean this? http://www.ruutu.fi/video/2949640 Team - Story of Toyota Gazoo Racing WRT

    Don't know if it works outside of Finland.

    Colin Clark podcast had an interesting take on Toyota and Hanninen. His recent improvement seems to mirror his IRC days where he was initially crash-prone but sorted himself out and becamw super-reliable and fast for two seasons.

    He also beat Neuville, Mikkelsen and Meeke to the IRC titles...
