Toyota has welcomed the FIA stewards' decision to clear the design of its diffuser following a protest lodged by rival teams.
The team had defended its design was legal, but Ferrari, BMW, Renault and Red Bull Racing today lodged a protest against the Japanese squad as well as against Williams and Brawn GP.
All cars were cleared on Thursday night, however, and they will be able to race on Sunday.
"We are pleased with the decision of the race stewards but we prefer not to comment further on the situation," said Toyota Motorsport Chairman Tadashi Yamashina.
"This weekend promises to be a tremendously exciting Australian Grand Prix so we are now looking forward to starting the competition on track with the first practice sessions on Friday."
Toyota said in a statement that it had "studied the wording of the new 2009 regulations in precise detail to ensure that we have interpreted them correctly."
