I have two .. possibly 4 or 5
1: Profazza Racing
Based: California or near COTA, with a European Base in the Lea Valley.
Colour Scheme: White, with a huge red ‘wave’ going along the side, up and down. Think a less sharp version of the Nike tick. (I’ve also modelled it on a NASCAR car, but that shan’t be posted)
Engine: Renault, it seems to be a good safe option, but I’d have a team working on reliability.
Drivers: Alexander Rossi as one, for that American exposure. Yuji Ide as one of the reserves. Hard choice for second driver, but I’d likely try to grab Barrichello or Alguersuari, Barrichello because he looks like a promising young driver, however inexperienced he might be, Alguersuari for the tyres. If Rossi proved to be rubbish, I’d go looking around for Sam Bird, Robin Frijns, definitely Glock as an option, and performance dependent Robert Wickens, Felipe Nasr or Filipe Albuquerque.
We’d go with a fuel economy based car, along with developing things such as KERS that could be applied to road cars – going with a ‘Win on Sunday, Sell on Monday’ mentality. As such, we’d be pushing for more technical freedom. With Rossi around, we’d also be looking to attract high profile American sponsors, whatever they are.
Overthought, much? Number 2 coming up.
BanzaiF1, Based in Japan, White and Red colour scheme, we’ll convince Honda to make a monster of an engine! Drivers will be Kobayashi and Sato, test driver Nakajima!
Didn’t go so well last time someone tried that.
