No more super model blow jobs for Bernie.
He's Eddie Irvine's bitch now.
Believe it when I see it.
Easier to buy a team than start one.
neck & neck...
The problem with "F14T" is that if the font is just right, it looks like it spells out "FIAT"
Lotus will be looking for a buyer soon.
Problem is who wants to assume that $180 million debt?

My money is on " Maranello" in a font that looks like "Marlboro"
They have a lot of problems to overcome. I agree, it doesn't look good. Most of the Lotus debt is to Genii, so I guess it's only paper debt. But they've lost engineers and a driver and who knows how good the replacements are? It's hard to see them matching last season's competitiveness without having more than just adequate funding.
on a lighter note....
Drivers annoyed competition to win number results in winning number
January 15th, 2014 | Author: Marcus Gearey
F1 drivers are annoyed the process of bidding for a career F1 number only resulted in them getting a career F1 number rather than a car or money or something.
The number allocation system was scraped together by the FIA as something to do before the F1 season kicked off again, rather than do that frigging Mario Kart league for the 8th year running.
Drivers were offered the chance to compete with the same number for the rest of their F1 career but in a process so shrouded in mystery, everyone was sure a stickered number between 2 and 99 cant have been the point, surely?
Guess how many problems Ive got go on: guess!!! Lotus driver, Pastor Maldonado said, I was excited when I heard about the number process as I too do literally nothing between the end of the current season and crashing my car into another competitor at the start of the next.
But if Id realised the number was the only prize , I wouldnt have tried to be clever going for one I knew nobody else would.
Instead of walking off with a remote-controlled helicopter or 32GB Nexus 7, the permanently unlucky-digit afflicted Venezuelan was instead shocked to learn hed actually selected his entry number for the rest of his career or until hes killed in an accident, whichever comes first.
Everybody now thinks I reckon Im in the same league as Gilles Villeneuve now, dont they? 27-wearing German, Nico Hulkenberg commented.
Oh well: could be worse at least they dont think I either have posters of Nena on my wall or a fetish for Mr Whippy, he added.

F1 isn't NASCAR. It takes huge gobs of money just to be a back marker, which is all a Dallara car will ever be. I just don't see a US team being willing to do that.
Would that be a problem?
Don't Fiat own Ferrari?
They do, but my thought is they probably don't want to throw that into people's faces too much.
Team Lotus in Formula 1 has signed a sponsorship agreement with Saxo Bank.
Good for them. Hopefully it's enough to keep them competitive.
looks like Caterham has picked their drivers
no KOV this year...
and from KOV:
I always wondered what happened to Chapmans hat. Remember the family gave it to Tony to throw in the air upon the 1st Lotus win. Guess they never figured the "other Lotus" would hire Kimi.
Tony Fernandes says that if Caterham show no progress then this will be his last season in F1.
On the one hand, does anyone care about a perennial backmarker? On the other hand, Fernandes makes valid points about F1's lack of competitiveness.
