If they plan to use Dallara to kick it off.... then I cant see it happening. If they bought Lotus / Enstone that would make a difference....

Oooff, this is very much out of the blue.

I think I will approach it as a "I will believe it when I see it on track" situation.

I wish them the best, I would love to see a proper US based team for a number of reasons. As mentioned above, swooping in and buying the Enstone Team would be the logical thing to do, but I doubt that fits with the goals of those behind the effort.

Well he could use the previous attempt" of how not" to start a US F1 team as lessons learned. I wish him well. What do you think, the whole Stewart Haas 4 car team budget times 5 to field 2 F1 cars and team? Or times 10?

It would make the most sense to buy the bust Lotus team for a $1 and do that.

If the Lotus team is purchased then that still leaves vacant team spots available and doesn't solve filling up the grid.

It's not as simple as just buying Lotus I think the operation and premises might well belong to different companies. That may be partly due to Lopez complicating things and Proton wanting to maintain something.

I hope he's heading a consortium. I get slightly horrified when one single person invests what is an atrocious amount of money into this sport. Folly, surely.

It has been suggested that this proposed new F1 team and the possible deal to purchase the Nurburgring as diversionary tactics to the real story i.e. what is happening to Bernie.

I could be wrong but when you look at the timing there is some logic to it.
