I'm glad I wasn't the only person who thought this, for years. AT least Pescarolo this year will have a 908.

Race Tech Magazine said at the debut of the Peugeot 908 (back in 2007) that it will win Le Mans in 2009... they have the pace but they tend to f*ck things up and kill their momentum.

Like all of the 908s being out because their radiators blew...

I read that Lola is thinking of reforming a team
(story) and Peter Windsor's USGP team is supposed to be running next year. How many cars would be too many?

Just bring back pre-qualifying or the 107% rule.

Max is suggesting 3 more teams and 40 million budget cap...
so maybe 26 cars in the future....

With all of the above comments directed at Audi and Audi products is it any wonder why they have never really given the US any of their juicy creations.

Winning LeMans the number of times they have doesn't come easy, no other manufacturer has done what they did in this form of motorsport and probably no one else ever will.

The question of whether Audi will enter F1 is an interesting one and another competitive team would be welcome, especially one with the financial clout of VAG behind them. The kind of budget only Toyota can rival but unlike them Audi and now Porsche (parent company) have both years of experience and success to fall back on. Mark my words, if Audi did venture into F1 then they would not only be very competitive but be up to speed very quickly indeed.

Interesting how the first pics show Michelin groved tires, the new one shows Bridgestone slicks.

I am not sure Audi could easily translate Le Mans success to F1. The only factory competition they had in Le Mans was 2d or 3d tier (Bentley, Cadillac, Puegot). That would be very different than competing in a field of Ferrari, Toyota, M-B, BMW, Renault

Porsche? Heck, even Ford won it 4 times in a row.

Don't think they'll pick up the knack in their first season...its total different playing field...with all the weird regulations and a deep pocket of Bernie...they need to feed his bank account first....

but i guess they might be good in one thing....consistency maybe???

Comments along the same vein are made about every manufacturer by one group or another and not just in the US.

If it was a legitimate reason to stay out of a market we'd have no cars in the US at all. Probably not in Ireland or Brittan either. The Italians would only be able to buy Ferrari and even then it would only be allowed within a 2-week window after winning each F1 race. The Swedes would still have access to every car on the planet but they'd still drive like a little old lady.

(Disclaimer: I pulled this out of my ass. Any similarity to real life is purely coincidental.)

Peugeot is an underfunded privateer team?

Audi is too puss to step into F1, though. They would never last in the realm of the big boys.

He was obviously referring to the times from 2000-2006 (Bentley was just a "different" type of Audi, considering the engineers were speaking German to each other). And when Nissan, Toyota, BMW, and MB left

Not to mention that Audi is mysteriously pulling out of racing except for LeMans now that the Peugeot is legit.
