F1 » López manager blasts 'main culprit' Anderson's 'deceit'


Felipe McGough, the manager of displaced USF1 signing José María López, has revealed that he is 'looking at anything' that would enable the Argentine to remain in F1 in 2010 - and launched a stinging attack on the 'deceit' of Peter Windsor and Ken Anderson

Whilst I do have sympathy that he lost money, there are 2 counterpoints. Firstly, most credible sources - Ecclestone included - saw USF1 for what they were ie all talk and no trousers. Secondly, I don't really think that F1 in 2010 will be poorer for Lopez's absence.

The next Fangio he is not.

Ferrari and Mark Webber are right. Too many jokers, wannabe teams around. F1 is a serious and expensive business so don't play around. If you cant even make the test dates the team should be dropped unless there a real good reason. Real shame for Lopez

This sorry episode above all shows up the FIA selectionship process. The buck stops with Mosely as he headed the drive for new teams. He should be banned for bringing the sport into disrepute, along with all other members of the selection process. There were two or three serious outfits that were turned down for undisclosed reasons. Perhaps the transparancy Todt has talked about will highlight this.
But wait! Whats that noise? Could it really be pigs flying by?

If I were Windsor or Anderson, I wouldn't be caught dead stepping foot in Argentina. They might find out what the inside of an Argentine prison looks like. They would be fools to go down there now, with $830,000 owed to Argentines and possibly fraud charges waiting

What a mess.

But this happens everyday in business - I wouldn't call it fraud.

Investors dump money in a startup and get burned. There is no guarantee any business gets off the ground or is successful. There are definitely monumental risk involved in a startup in any business - especially in designing, building, and running an F1 car from nothing.

It's not like they are the first team to fall on their face trying to start a race team.

But in saying that, Windsor and Anderson would be fools to go Argentina! lol

I agree with RawDawg. After more than 30 years in business, and involved in several start-ups, starting any new business is always a crap shoot. Anderson and Windsor stepped up to the plat, swing at the pitch as hard as they could, and popped up. It happens every day in business. But in this case it was all done in the full view of the public.

Who the heck is Felipe Mc Gough... a guy with the dubbius merit of being friend of Marcelo Tinelli, and be part of VideoMatch, a television show born 15 years ago with him as a semiclown. I remember him going down from the tiragoma, a firemen pole. He is a goma, a fool, a clown. Now, like many gomas in my poor country, is a gentleman because he has money.
You can met the jet set, the creme broulee of the society, but you are allways the same guy who was useless, and the only merit was a friend, and enormous amounts of luck.
Worst of all, he lied so badly that now many people here began to insult him, like I´m doing from the very beggining of the USF1 issue.
Sorry about my english.
