It would be nice to see more competition in F1, and bringing back old names such as Maserati, Alfa Romeo, Lotus, BRM, Van Wall ...etc would appeal to the romantics who still love the glory days of F1 when men were still men.
I'm not sure how the corporate politics within Fiat would work if Maserati were the B team. Would there be orders that Maserati would have to pull over and let Ferrari pass? (not that this happens with RB or TR) Personally, I can't see it working though.
I would like to see more private (non engine manufacturer) teams, but given the current climate I can't see this happening.
There have been rumours in that past that Aston Martin, VAG (Audi or Bentley) and Hyundai/Kia were seriously considering a move into F1 in 2010/2011. Has the current downturn put an end to this too?
One thing for sure is that 18 drivers on the grid, and possibly 16 if Toyota go will not be good for the sport.
