Ken and Peter were way over their heads and I feel mostly sorry for the employees and especially Jose Maria Lopez for putting too much trust and funding. Usf1 also let down Argentina.I think ken and Peter are going to get sued by the employees and maybe by the investors.

What a disgrace this lot were. Anderson and Windsor are no more than sheer incompetent fools. If the rumours are to be believed they could have come to a mutually beneficial merger with (the then) Campos and been on the grid in some form. But the fools wasted everyones time and "ploughed" on regardless. They've let their employees down and led Jose Maria Lopez down the garden path. Let's hope they are sued to show us the full depth of their incompetence.

The much praised FIA selection criteria was obviously seriously flawed. Or perhaps they were conned by the information given by this dubious USF1 team? Just where has the money gone? Reports show there was no car built, despite having about 5 times the time the Lotus team has had. Or was the whole thing just a con from start to finish? Perhaps they were just kidding themselves!

@ TAZ.. Shot, sounds about right...I personally sent a mail gram to the Attorney General Mr. Holder, along with all the internet bull put out by Windser, and Anderson

Simply a Scan .. American style, what usually goes with that is the workers are screwed out of
beaning payed fairly...a Scan from the get go!!!

Never a car, that nose cone thing was just running a game passed the FIA

One can only wonder just how stupid is the FIA...
Stefan had a team ready to go, Ferrari pays a driver NOT to drive f1 this season, Bernie knew that USF1 thing was a Scan and did nothing!

Well this soap opra is far from finish..Did Mr. Lopez get all of his money returned, I bet not.

Rip off!!

@JOSE, A scan? Did you mean scam? Anyways, American style? What the FU#$ does that mean. Maybe you can clarify for some of us Americans! Remembering of course who and where the team principles are from! I will be waiting for you "educated" (im sure) answer. :?
