Toyota TF109 - inboard rear brake callipers

As seen in Spain, Toyota are the only team to currently have their rear brake callipers mounted inboard relative to the rear axle, concentrating more weight closer to the car's centre of gravity. Most other teams have the calliper mounted on the other side of the brake disc behind the rear axle, while those on the Brawn and Red Bull are positioned horizontally at the base of the disc.
