    BMW F1 finally sold

    http://en.f1-live.com/f1/en/headline...27115537.shtml


    I hope Peter makes it on the grid and does well. Another Honda-Brawn-win out of the box situation is unlikely but still...

    So IF Sauber gets a spot on the grid:
    1. What engines will they use. The failed Qadbak deal was supposed to use Ferrari engines.
    2. What will Mario Theisen do?
    3. Who will drive for them? Heidfeld seems a natural.

    How is this:

    Plus there is Cosworth and plenty of others. Sauber has a good eye for talented drivers, picking one Michael Schumacher to drive a Sauber Mercedes C11 comes to mind...

    Sauber granted the 13th slot, Toyota's out, Kimi off to WRC, Renault maybe selling to Prodrive, and maybe just maybe Schumi driving again- for Mercedes.

    Why is it that the F1 off season is more interesting than the racing season?

    There is a great interview in F1 Racing with Bob Kubica in which he spills some beans like; BMW telling him not to win after his first pole because the board may have high expectation and that they were more concerned with perception than winning.

    In any case, I hope Renault do sell to Prodrive as I believe they would provide better entertainment...
