JohnnyBravo should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Red Bull Team USA (nee Jaguar Racing!)

Well the rumour mill is red hot again, has anyone out there got any news of a more substantial nature as to the potential new home of Mr. Red Bull's money.
He spent a lot of time with Mr. Lauda at the weekend and speculation mounts of an Austrian buyout??????????

Lauda is quoted on F1-live as saying that he has a firm contract for 2003, so yes, he will be moving on

In a word......
No!
It doesn't look good for Lauda. I would guess the only contract he has is the one that ensures he get a multi million dollar pay off when he gets sacked!

freud has a lot of promise if they can keep it on the circuit!
If that happens, sadly, Lauda will destroy another stable team...

i know weve been over this a million times before....but i really think Lauda jumped into quickly with the attitude that he knows better . They should have at least gave Rahal the chance to show what he could do...they only gave him 10 months or something .
and that is Lauda's fault.

why do all the rumours around at the moment involve Jaguar ok there doing **** and ok thats partly due to Lauda jumping in an put his big feet in. But has no one ever heard the saying ROME wasn't built in a day.
Before anyone says it I know its been 3 years but 3 different managers as well there starting to move forward!

For example before Irvine went out on sunday he was the 4th fastest man on the track so I have every faith in Jaguar for next season theres already been a marked improve so will everyone please get of our backs

Its not really been just 3 years. This is a team which was inherited (bought) from Jackie Stewart. Stewart were starting to go places and with Jaguar's money, they should by now be competing for wins. I'm a fan of Lauda, much as I was a fan of Prost, but great drivers don't always make great (or even good) team bosses.

It'll be interesting to see how MS goes, when and if he moves into management!! I've no doubt he will be well able to master the management side too.

"Get off our backs" BennyBoy, do I detect a certain amount of vested interest?
It may be 3 years and 3 Bosses but they're still headless and as I stated in an earlier thread, at the crucial time for development of a new car they have changed desinger chiefs again!
Stability is the key, how long before they realise this?

Sorry bit naive there BennyBoy. If Jordan get equal engines to Jaguar, they will be well ahead. There's no evidence that next year's car will be any better than this year's monstrosity that Arrows beat with earlier engine evolutions and no money.

Stability is the key, and on that note I think Luada shoulg get a bit longer to turn it around. Sacking Bobby Rahal was defiantely the wrong move.

Back to the topic: I see nothing unusual about Mateschitsz and Lauda speaking. They are two Austrian Businessmen of a similar age. However, with the probable demise of Arrows, Marteschitz selling of his shares in Sauber, the desire that Deiter M. has of creatiung an "American" presence in F1 may be best served by a new sponsorship deal with Jaguar, that most "American" of F1 Teams due to Ford ownership. Couple that with Ford's recent declaration that each division must be financially self-sufficient and I say we have the makings of a plausible rumour.

What Jag needs more than anything is stability. I was a big fan of Niki the driver but so much of Niki the manager, but additonal money, an Austrian Sponsor and a Mark Webber just might be the ticket for improved fortunes in 2003.

The word on the street is that Richie Hearn and Terry Borrcheler will be testing an F1 car later this year. I assumed it was minardi or Arrows, but maybe it's Jaguar.
