I look forward to VJM scuttling back to India and more profitable ventures.
Spyker was the worst thing that happened to that team. A car manufacturer that was going broke owning an F1 team.. sure that sounded promising!andartop wrote:I wish it could be bought back by Jordan or Spyker
To clarify: My comments are based on my personal experience (not on opinion or assumption) working for and with Indian high tech companies. I do NOT look forward to another team withdrawing. I do fear that Mallya will cut and run if the going gets a little rough. I hope I am 100% wrong about him. Ideally (IMHO), he would sell the team to an individual or group who would have the guts and the gold to make it work.mx_tifosi wrote:Why such a negative outlook 'donskar'?
I don't understand why you would look forward to another team withdrawing. Seeing how we will most likely only have 18 cars on the grid in Australia, losing two more would be terrible.
Even though I didn't like FI that much when they bought Spyker, I know appreciate them a lot more. We need as many quality teams as possible, and I believe FI are in that category for the time being.
Although I don't undertand the reason for dismissing Gascoyne and Kolles from their respective positions, and for Mallya to take it upon himself to run a Formula One team. Maybe because he sees that Briatore can do so could he, we'll see how that works out for him soon enough.
And besides, they have increased (McLaren) Mercedes' income by using their powertrain, drivetrain, and KERS. And will help them in the R&D department as well. Another +.
Do you have any links to those pics? Would be interesting to have a look at.Spencifer_Murphy wrote:
With regards to the car, a couple of F1 Racing issues ago they showed windtunnel testing in the FIF1 labs...the few shots of the model gave me the impression that the car could be quite interesting...nothing like the R29 or RB5 or anything, but still interesting none the less.
It looks aerodynamically sound (from the very little images I saw) and with the Mercedes engine they should be capable of an improvement over last year.
