I'm not sure RBR is really in this for the really long term. After all, they have no real business in the car or racing industry except a wide array of sponsor deals in all kinds of different motorsports. Who knows what will happen to the team if the results start to disappear. We've seen things like this before with other sponsors like for instance Martini.

They might stick around for a couple of years riding this wave of success but their only competitive advantage and right of being is Adrian Newey. Dietrich has already said the team costs more than he'd like so when Newey leaves, the results go and Mateschitz goes on to other things what happens next? For teams like Ferrari, McLaren, Williams and Sauber, car racing is their core business. The rest could all be passing strangers like we've seen so many in the past.

Jaime should better hedge his bets.

A driver with 18 months experience in F1 and a best finish of 9th 'admits' he would like to drive clearly the best car in the field.

Talk about state the bleedin obvious! I reckon there's only 2 drivers (Alonso & Hamilton) that wouldn't be seriously tempted by an offer from RBR right now.
