Well a team is anyway. On Tuesday the first formula one team based in the USA in over twenty years will be unveiled. It’s headed up by favorite Peter Windsor, appropriately a Brit. Teaming up with Peter is an actual American Ken Anderson, of Tony Stewart’s NASCAR team… I guess we’ll take what we can get. Creatively the new US based F1 team will be called USF1. Ahhh Damn! Check out Speed at Noon ET for live coverage.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m really excited for this. The F1 world really hates America in general. To them we are just unsophisticated self-absorbed yokels. Not anymore Bernie, now we finally have a team to cheer for! One that can stick it to all those pinkos across the pond that think they are better than us.
But seriously and more importantly I hope this opens the door just a bit more for F1 to return to the States with a Grand Prix. I’m going to try and start posting F1 news and thoughts here as the season draws near. That is until SB Nation gets an F1 page. So pretty much forever.
I’m sorry for posting this on uncommon. I feel as if I posted on SB Nation’s NASCAR page I’d be ridiculed. But hey, they’re the ones watching family sedans with 1950’s technology (carburetors, really?) running is circles for hours on end. Not to mention Dex, Kev and I are gay for pre-Madonna Euro Trash driving cars that cost half a billion dollars annually to operate in exotic locations we really can’t afford to see in person. (For the record we’ve been to a few.)
