Poll: Which F1 team is most likely to go next?

Honda's shock announcement last week that it is to withdraw from Formula 1 with immediate effect has sent ripples through the sport, with murmurings that other teams may now follow.

In a climate of growing financial unease around the globe – and the sport's massive costs plunging several car manufacturers' future participation into doubt – it has been suggested that one or more of Honda's rivals could now follow suit, with Toyota seen as the most likely victim.

There have also been question marks raised, though, about Renault, Red Bull Racing, Scuderia Toro Rosso and Williams, so here's your chance to have your say.

Is another F1 outfit likely to disappear before the 2009 season gets underway, and if so, who will it be...?

Hard to predict. Renault sponsor ING is on the brink and received a lifeline. Can they justify F1 to their investors? RBS is belly up, can they also justify still being in F1? Ferrari has Shell and Malborro. BMW has Petrobas and Intel. Much easier for them to keep sponsoring. Can Renault/Nissan or Toyota, watching worldwide 40% drop in sales? Who knows... Bernie will have to revise his greedy take on the way down.
