This is a good news story. Very best of luck to Manor GP/Virgin Racing.

I'll be supporting the Yorkshire team in 2010.

John 'Butcher' Booth has come a very long way since his Formula Ford 1600 days in the '70's

It is brilliant to see this wonderful team move onwards and upwards. A great pedigree and an example to everyone and anyone who have ever dreamed of running a racing team. Manor have set high standards and always achieved them, yet have always remained a close 'family' in their attitude towards each other and supporters - never too busy to help someone else, or spend time with a fan.
Great people going on to great things. Have a fantastic season in 2010, and most of all, enjoy!

I know this is probably a very obnoxious comment, but it seems like we are going to have the two tier championship after all: Notice how (the fake) Lotus, Virgin, Campos and USF1 all say “our goal is to be the best of the new teams”?

I say the winners of the “new teams championship” is going to be ... Toro Rosso :D

I'm conflicted. As a new team I wish them well but I strongly dislike Branston (still think he is really Tony Blair in a wig) so as well as wanting them to do well, I want them to fail. AHHHHHH!!!!! HELP!!!!
