F1 » Wurz admits he could yet be persuaded by USF1

Two-time Le Mans 24 Hours-winner Alex Wurz has appeared to backtrack on his earlier insistence that he will not be returning to F1 with USF1 in 2010 - admitting that the American, Chad Hurley-backed outfit is the 'only one' that could yet tempt him back onto the grand prix grid...

usf1 hiring wurz would be a really negative move IMO. he was utter pap when williams re-cycled him in 2007 after 7 years out of racing. i don't buy any of the crap about experience, wurz has nothing left to give.

jv on a bad day is better than wurz on a good one. his best year was 98. outside that he was shocking. the odd result that was usually a result of luck.

Not going to spew any s*it but I will mention some facts.

USF1 most likely will not be on the grid. All the signs point to Windy gearing up to sell the team or the grid slot.

USF1/Windy were the only ones to not sign an agreement which prevents teams from selling up, Windy was in favour of a system which makes it a lot easier to score points, they have not carried out any crash testing whilst the other new teams have and despite the team supposedly having been in the planning for 5 years they have only just "appointed" a technical partner. Doesn't quite add up to a team that will be racing in 2010 does it?

Andrew: All you did was be another USF1 hater and spew drivel. You're "facts" aren't facts at all just speculation on your part and if Windsor sells, so what, he won't be the first or last to start a business and sell it for a profit.

Also, you're being intellectually dishonest once again bringing up the worn out line about the team "having been in the planning for 5 years" and making an even sillier argument about having just now appointed a technical partner. Obviously Windsor, et al spent several years first trying to put together the massive amount of money it will take to run a few seasons of F1 before the rules they and the other new teams would have to race with were even set.

The reason we don't hear about USF1 is because they're in the U.S. where we don't have journalists knocking on their door every day like in the U.K. The Brits like to make rumors and that's how the media make money, but bashing a team is preposterous. When USF1 is ready, they'll come out and make their announcements. USF1 will sign Jose Maria Lopez once he comes up with the money, but I think Bourdais is better once he has the right setup, something that STR rarely gave him.

yermums, bob, juice - there are some good reasons for doubting that USF1 is for real. There have been some well written posts to that effect here. There have also been some well written posts supporting USF1 by non-US types. Some of your comments have merit. But when you use jingoist rhetoric or abuse non-US citizens and institutions to support your beliefs, you do a disservice to our country's image abroad. We can have disagreements, and I have seen some heated ones on crash, but let's do so in a manner which respects everyone's freedom of speech. :)
