I think it's Red Bull that Jenson needs to be watching next year.
Buemi has just re-signed to Torro Rosso next year, So I would not go getting my hopes up If I were you..... :)

My point Brit is that TR was NOT competitive this year. SO any new team would be worse. I am not laying any money on TR as their leader is a looney. So my only hopes are that the new teams make the grid. Nothing more. I pull for McL.

I don't think the new teams will be that far off to be honest.If USF1 is on the grid,Peter Windsor should know what it takes to field a competitive car and Mike Gascoyne for Lotus surely does so there may be a few surprises during the first part of the season.With the testing and Aero being limited now the cars are on a much more level playing field and everyone will have double diffusers.Good management is what it takes and Torro Rosso and Toyota didn't have it.

We may see an F1 & A1GP race all in one next year. Can Cosworth build & test an engine in 6 months to match those of Ferrari, Mercedes & Renault which have taken years to develop? I wonder.
