you must be joking, he was crap
I suggest it was because they aren't their own team... It is a half-arsed-honda, and the sponsers know that they will never go up the field without their own designed cars.freedom_honda wrote:i dont understand why they couldnt get any sponsors i mean they did a wonderful job in 2007 despite their situation

As long as Force India is powered by Ferrari and with the first Indian GP rapidly approaching, there's an opening for a F1 manufacturer of more universally attainable motor vehicles making great inroads into the rapidly growing market. Renault and Honda will have to consider whether this is best achieved with their own brands or whether a joint venture with a local operator might serve their purposes better. If the latter is determined to be the better approach, Lakshmi Mittal is certainly very well positioned to accommodate such a deal. Meanwhile, an Indian company could also make a deal with Cosworth and "become" a F1 manufacturer in its own right.
