US F1 closes down

US F1 has closed its factory less than two weeks before it was supposed to begin competing in Formula 1.

According to Autosport the remaining staff have been laid off. I have been trying to contact the team for several days without success.

There has not yet been an official announcement from the team.

It remains to be seen if there will be time for their entry to be taken up by Stefan GP with the first practice session at Bahrain just ten days away.

    Hate to say it, but I doubted them from the begining. Windsor and Anderson spent too much time in TV interviews talking up a minimalist F1 team concept and too little time establishing the credibility they would need to bring on sponsors and deliver a car on time.

    What is infuriating is that a team that has failed spectacularly continues to have the arrogance to stand in the way of a team that has resources, a car and a former world champion driver ready to go. Stephan GP was even ready to test and would have had more laps on their car than Hispania (nee Campos) and as many as Lotus and Virgin. The FIA should have waved the blue flag on USF1 weeks ago.

    Sad state of affairs…
