Those are a lot of links, so I'd check them out after I get back from the Dubai Motorshow. But I do enjoy the light-hearted side of the Virgin vs Lotus skirt challenge

This one is pretty good too.

I've got to say I really hope that they make all the teams eat their words, b ut I really don't see it happening. Does anyone know at what point they are in development?
It might just be my own personal nature, but I believe in keeping expectations low, that way you give the critics nothing to work with. This might not be a very good strategy if you're trying to attract sponsors though.

Am I remembering right? Were google and you tube mentioned as potential sponsors?
Chad Hurley, one of the co-founders of Youtube, was the first major sponsor to sign on with USF1. But it's not a deal with Youtube proper, though I think he is bringing the youtube name with him.

The US F1 team will run its car for the first time at the Barber Motorsport Park in Alabama next month.

The Charlotte-based squad has confirmed its car will have an American debut before it travels to Europe to begin testing ahead of its maiden Formula 1 season.

"Because we are a new team and start everything from zero the first time we will run the car will be in the United States at the Barber Motorsport Park in Alabama, the circuit that was nominated by the FIA for us," sporting director Peter Windsor told the official Formula 1 website.

"We've got the dispensation from the FIA, which is fantastic, because we are not based in Europe. We are the only team that does have a test circuit outside Europe, so it is totally logical for us that we run the car the first time in the US at the beginning of February."

Windsor said the team is allowed to carry out three testing sessions in the US, but will then fly to Spain to join its rivals.

He added that US F1 is on the verge of announcing its drivers for the upcoming season.

"We are very close to announcing our drivers," he said. "We've been talking to some great racing drivers over the last couple of months - and it is very difficult choosing from the good drivers that are around.

"I think there are still a lot and the difficult thing is to choose only two out of ten that are available. It's a difficult job and I hate having to do that. We have not signed our forward deals yet in terms of the contracts, but we are pretty near to announcing."

Wow, this is good news! I didn't expect that.
How many pre-season tests are each team allowed? I thought there were 3 agreed test dates....
