That's really my point. I didn't contribute to his crowdfunding project, but given it is both still active and IMHO a failure, he should be embarrassed to be talking F1 at this point. Frankly I think it's disrespectful to those who gave (and may still be giving) him money for the LMP2 project.

F1Guy should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Maybe.... someone has approached Brabham for the rights to use the name 'Brabham'?

Maybe.... it's not David Brabham who is actually behind this project.

If so, it would be interesting to know the details of the deal. Given he is trying to create a team with the Brabham name, why sell/license the naming rights to someone else? I expect if you were to pay him for the rights to label an F1 team, you would want exclusive use to avoid future confusion (i.e. David running a sports car team under the name and someone else running an F1 team). It all just seems odd.

The sportscar project was a couple of years ago. It was supposed to be a big fan engagement extravaganza. But they all but disappeared.

David Brabham is no entrepreneur. So, it would be smart for him to sign of on a deal with people who are. I'd like to see the Brabham name back myself; but I doubt the prospects for that are particularly good.

Regarding the sportscar project, while it was started a few years ago, the main Brabham website is being actively updated (news items from recent as roughly a month ago), still lists "Project Brabham", and the indiegogo is up and accepting money. So while nothing became of it with respect to output, it is still actively trying to sucker people out of their money... sorry, I mean ask for donations.

However, I actually like the idea this is someone else (cough cough Ecclestone) who wants to resurrect the Brabham name (given his history). If it is Ecclestone, I would be shocked if the Brabham family was involved outside of a cash payment and some VIP passes so they can be seen in the garage. Time will tell if they want money, or are serious about creating a team with the name themselves. What may be unfortunate is that maybe there is zero truth to this F1 rumor and then you have people like me rolling their eyes at the entire thing given the recent history of Project Brabham.

It can't be a bad thing to have a different owner for a team where its 2 current patrons are either in jail, or there are legal gymnastics pending to get the second one there too

Another stunning job by Force India in Spain, making Williams look poor.

The data re Project Brabham seems pretty overwhelming , All smoke and mirrors and BS . Classic World owes me a living.

Bit early to say. A smallish team like Force India may fall behind in the development race as the season wears on. But they've certainly done very well so far.

Maybe a new name for the team: Force India name hasn't delivered
Names can be quite important of course, must say that "Force India" never really did it for me - if the name is changed, let's hope it leads to a better financial base for them.
