Y'know, I still find it fairly strange that they still have not found a major sponsor! They said they had no reason to hurry, but lets face it, the longer they debate and **** about, the more the interested companies will lose interest!
I believe there is something going on and all will be revealed later rather than sooner. I think the team are concentrating on the two titles at the moment. What major sponsor has come into F1 this year? You Tube and Branson are small potatoes. There will be Mercedes help, I have no doubt. There could still be Honda money still going in - we don't know. They have wind tunnels they can hire, etc. Jens may race for peanuts again - he just likes to win and has managed his fortune well. My guess is, he'd rather have the glory than the cash - for now, at least. They may have to build a piecemeal package as Williams do. In reality, it is definitely not the time to be starting an F1 team or sponsoring one. It will be hard for them as it is for every privateer. They may haul in a big fish in season three, if they perform well next year and prove 2009 is not a flash in the pan. I rather think BGP are built of the right stuff and will be around for some considerable time to come.
