Yes. More money = faster car...unless maybe if you let Mike Gascoyne design it.

I think this team is doing a good job projecting an image of being a team on the way up, which IMO is the only way to be succesful in F1. Their driver choice and some of the high profile companies that they've managed to attract (eventhough they don't seem to be bringing shedloads of coin) signal to other potential big sponsor that this isn't another team relying on paydrivers to drive around in the midfield or back of the grid. Ultimately only the frontrunning teams actually make money in F1 and this is their only way to get there I think.

Obviously it's a bit shaky ground in the meantime as Lopez will need to foot the bill without apparent strain to make people nervous...

Kimi really did a great job this year, he put this team back on the map single-handedly. Cannot believe the amazing job he did in his first year back.
