spyker has the opportunity to win a race - when we will see something like indyanapolis some years ago :-) (with michelin teams not participating...)this time it would be easier with only one tyre supplier :-) .. but really i do not think they can be able to score too many points they do not have the money for this...

I don't think Spyker has the venture capital to afford a really thorough R/D team. They are barely hanging on as it is. Their road car division has been in financial woes this past year and that will certainly put a strain on a team trying to compete in the most $$$ driven motorsport. However, I do like their livery. Probably one of the nicest looking skins outside the McLarens and Ferraris. It would be interesting to put Schumacher behind their wheel for shits and giggles and see if that would make the difference!

Shits and giggles! :lol:

I bet you anything Schumacher signed a milti-million dollar exclusivity contract with Ferrari not to drive anything without their prior approval... still ferrari need a sister team and where better to start than with a team with two young and talented drivers...

What an awesome way for us to keep seeing Schumi impact the sport. I'm telling you Ferrari are grooming him to take over a team (maybe ferrari).

Second windtunnel just needs commisioning and that will be running. Also the road car division losing money and going bankrupt has no emphisis on the F1 team.
