And audi??? A big logo on it's side!!
STR are looking for an owner who is prepared to invest and to spend serious money each year in return for his name on the car. Red Bull did that.
So it can only be a brand that can afford that kind of exposure. Automotives can do that, drinks can and then it gets tight. it is not an easy task for Gerhard.

I could see a Prodrive team in 2010, but with a diffrent Engine manufacturer to what they were planning on this year if Customer Cars were allowed, i can see a Prodrive team being a reality with Aston Martin engines, as David Richards has close ties with Aston Martin.
However same could be said for Subaru, but Toyota wont want to get into b teams.
I do think that there could be a new partner for Berger at STR, the intrest i could see there being in Itany is from Alfa Romeo, but they are owned by Fiat so same rules as Lancia.
Super Aguri, their future is uncartain, if someone can get $150-225m of sponsorship together, over a long term period (5 years) i could see them in racing next year, with Honda power and Tacuma at the wheel of one car, and make a impact close to last years impact.
Hyundai would be good new team, same with VW, they would be as successful as Toyota id say, but not as successful as Ferarri and BMW in the short to medium term.
American manufacturers will not participate un F1 in the long term for economic reasons and because the US public still have the race that was 2005 still in their memorys!!!
