This outfit could not possibly be any funnier, they leave USF1 smoking on fumes.

* Ex GP2 team with no money
* Dried up ex F1 racer Villeneuve as driver
* Briatore as a principal
* Symonds as technical and crane location advisor

Possible Recruits:

* Max Mosely as team FIA liason officer and principal
* Nelson Piquet Junior as 2nd driver
* Peter Winsor as media liason and toaster operater.

Ok, why dont we now call F1 for F2, an economic series where the aim is not to run fast, but to save fuel, engines and tires..and let anyone with 4 wheels enter the series...

This can be summed up by a workmate of mine, a Crash reader but non-poster (and notorious Mr Angry type).

5 mins ago. 'Jesus wept, not F**king Villeneuve again, this is F1 not wheelchair racing'

Which followed, 5 mins earlier, and I guess relating to a JB story. 'Christ, Crash, I know where the f**ker comes from by now'.

Regretably he hotdesks, but it was good while it lasted.

Seriously, I admired Villeneuve for taking the fight to MS but he just seems a bit desperate and I can't work out why

re: soaum
i know hrt are crap but i dont think dallara should be talking all the blame, the whole campos era was a mess and money wasnt going to dallara so they were constantly stopping work on the car which gave them even less time than the other teams. (i must admit tho i thought they should have been a bit closer to the other newbies)
