USF1: Separating fact from rumor

Granted, news that Peter Windsor and Ken Anderson are involved in some sort of U.S.-based F1 effort sounds very much like the normal, midwinter rumor, but this is one that seems to have legs.

Opinions run the gamut, and I think we are all forgiven if we are a bit skeptical, so let's stick with the few facts we have.

  1. Some highly-respected Web sites have picked up the story, confirming some facts, though questions remain.
  2. Max Mosley has confirmed he has been approached by such a team, according to comments he made to reporters.
    "They have (approached us). They are serious people but I think they will be the same as everybody else, they need the costs to come down if they want to be competitive," Reuters reports he said.

Until some of the principal players go on record, either to confirm or deny, speculation will run wild.

Topper of the day? This one which goes around the horn to tie Danica Patrick to a seat with the as-yet nonexistent team.

OK. Maybe that was a little tongue-in-cheek, but since we know so little, we might as well have fun with it.

Mosley has opinions on things

A number of stories appeared this quoting FIA president Max Mosley on a variety of subjects. Here are some highlights:

Bourdais to return to action

Toro Rosso announced Sebastien Bourdais will test for it next week in Jerez, as he tries to keep alive his hope of holding off Takuma Sato and retaining his seat with the Faenza-based team.
