F1 » 'USF1 is dead...and it won't come back'


The end of the road has officially been reached for USF1, it appears - with a senior employee confirming that all staff have been put on indefinite leave, and concluding that the financially-beleaguered American hope 'is dead...and it won't come back'

Although Max did make some contributions to F1. For the most part he provided Rubbish..When the teams were fat and happy they let Max write the rules. Wonder if they have regrets now??

This is all part of Bernie's plan.

He signs up a couple duds (Campos and USF1), get their entry fee and when surprise surprise they turn to sh1t, grab another couple teams and get their entry fees. Sort of 6 entry fess for the price of two or three teams.

Also lets not forget how Dave Richards/Prodrive was turned down a slot for these new vaporware teams.
The entire episode is a disgrace. Perfect example of the sorry state of F1.

So Anderson and Windsor were able to lure in a potentially enormous sponsor and even Formula 1 partner, a wealthy multimedia entrepreneur no less and not only did they fail to get their team rolling but they made him so mad he wont even partner with another team now.

Nice job fellas! Way to help the sport you love so much!

Slightly off topic... Could someone remind me what the last US based F1 team was referenced in the article from 20ish years ago? I can't for the life of me recall who/what/where.

LoveF1 - very true. You don't become that rich by being nice.

I deal with commercial landlords on nearly a daily basis and the mess that some of their buildings are in is a disgrace. No wonder a lot of them a millionaires - they don't invest in their property and lumber some poor tenant with all responsibility and let us poor surveyors deal with the inevtiable sh1t storm which will follow from their greed.
