    Not really a surprise I suppose.

    (Enter Stage Right: Mr Sauber & crew)

    Had Flav not been banned it is possible that all manufacturer teams would have been out this year making a return to garagista F1 - many with Cosworth engines

    It may yet happen that Renault are bought even without Flav but hopefully with some rather more pukka individuals than Mike Lawrence is alleging are involved with the Sauber buy-out http://www.pitpass.com/fes_php/pitpa...s_art_id=39516

    Really tough luck on Kobayashi. I was looking forward to seeing more of him next year.

    So - NO japanese involvement in F1 now

    I Have to agree Francis I was very impresed with the young man and was looking forward to seeing more of him, hopefully he will pick up a ride (never want to see Nakajima again mind )

    Nakajima was still better than Shinji Nakano

    Same here He was most entertaining for the last couple of races, hopefully he will get a drive elsewhere.

    That will depend on how much cash he can now raise though I suppose there is an outside chance of someone else (i.e. Sauber or possibly even Renault) looking at him as a very cheap option indeed.
