US F1 gives up on 2010

Reports emerged yesterday US F1 has put its staff on unpaid leave as the team abandoned its 2010 car. It still hopes to defer its entry to 2011.

USF1 awaits a decision from the FIA.

Ferrari’s “Serbian vultures,” Stefan GP, hope to fill the grid vacancy, but a volatile relationship with the FIA does not make that a forgone conclusion.

Three of Max Mosley’s new teams, Virgin, Lotus and Campos Meta, remain.

Speaking of Campos, the team has been re-christened Hispania Racing (HRT F1) following the team’s takeover by Jose Ramon Carabante.

A formal launch is scheduled for Thursday, which may shed some light on the driver lineup.

Bruno Senna had been confirmed under the Campos guise, Karun Chandhok has been rumored to be in line for the second seat, with US F1 refugee Jose Maria Lopez looking at a reserve role.

  4. Red Bull - Vettel/Webber

  • Hispania (Campos) - Senna?/Chandhok?/Lopez?
  • Stefan - Nakajima?/Villeneuve?

I'm sorry to read this item. I had hoped that the USF1 idea would work. Will their sponsors wait for them? Somehow I doubt it.

If I were to wager a guess at why, I’d say that users don’t “browse” forms. The interaction style users engage in with forms is different, and requires its own study and design best practices. This is a very interesting post, and the comments are also fantastic to read. I’ll have poses to have a little re-think about my own contact form on our new website, as this some interesting questions!
