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'

andrew, i agree with your second last post. i had to visit a terrace house owned by a politician. about 20 (unemployed) graduates living in it, on mattresses on the floors! a death trap! but such is greed!

With regard to Andrews last comment the entry list is indeed open for all to see.

In the same article it also states the FIA are now constructing a fresh entry selection process.

Re Campos now HRT the second driver reads TBA with Senna being confirmed

Stefan have indeed been excluded with the statement reading that USF1 grid slot would not be replaced.

Now the concentration will be on HRT and will they make it.

I do believe that working out the correct time for the start of HRT can be important.

The selection process is faulty. When teams like Prodrive are turned down, something is far wrong.

I had the misfortune to see Windsor give a talk mid way through last season.
Not a good experience, full of BS and self importance, I could never see how he was going to come across with a GP team :)

@ Andrew

Totally agree with your comments. HRT should be a complete unit with their cars tested prior to entering competition.

We can only hope the fresh selection process they talk of is one of commonsense and feasability.

On a more positive note the FIA have acknowledged the errors regarding the process and are prepared to re-write the book. For the FIA to admit errors in their administration and not hide behind a cloak is a step forward in the correct direction.

Hi all-- nice so see so many posters so happy. Good day for you/all huh? Even though I am biased being born, raised and living in the USA, it is a sad day for F1. One less team period, no matter the circumstances.
Andy, good to see you up today. You ought to work with the BigCity boards here to try and bring LandlORDS to justice. Or at least up to 'code.' There is a reason they are called land-'Lords' Appears it comes down from ole England.
See everyone, we are not so different afterall except for our taste in (make up anything).

Roger Penske coulda pulled it off. That man has a 3 car nascar squad, and an Indy Car line up. He also did REALLY well in the ALMS series running Porche prototypes. I saw one of the prototypes at the LA autoshow (not that it has any bearing) and it looked awesome.
