Even IF he's not directly bringing in sponsors, I'm sure Campos will be banking on some sponsors coming in to the team because of the Senna name.

You don't really hear much from Campos Meta and I don't know if that's a good thing or bad thing. Maybe the car has done some crash testing already, but the car is built by Dallara so it doesn't say much about the actual team...Where does the money come from, that's the most important question.

I really do not care a fig how he gets the drive, as long as he turns up and races, and manages to keep his head whilst all around are losing theirs!

Bwarhahahaha!
I am sorry, It had to be said by someone, might as well have been me! :blush:

At the moment no new driver is going to get onto the grid whithout sponsorship, thats just the way it is there is nothing wrong with that. Look at the likes of Hamilton, Vettle, and Sutil they have all had major backers who thrust them on to the grid. At the moment whithout a backer its a hell of a gamble for an F1 team to make in a rubbish economy. Once he's there thats when he has to work like stink to stay there.

Crash said Campos Meta, run by ex Grand Prix ace, Adrian Campos.

There's no way you could ever call Adrian Campos a Grand Prix ace. Have a look at his GP record before you make brash statements like that. He did one & a half seasons for Minardi in 1987-88, & his best result was 14th.

So what if he has paid to be in F1? All drivers have to bring money and sponsorship to their team. If he is good enough to be in F1 then he should be in F1. Simple as that.

As long as he doesn't ram folk of the track that is the main thing.
