Clearly giving American drivers a chance was their number 3 priority, ie...test driver.

Guess they got some of it with Lopez. They missed Nick and Pedro on the "development/guidance" department. God help us if they sign Jacque or Ralph... O'Brother...

He bringing $8 million in sponsorship (and no salary from the team I'd guess), which is interesting since it doesn't seem like much money given a team's total yearly budget...but then, the newer, cheaper F1 being touted may be playing by new rules.

Off the top of my head I remember teams spent around $250M annually in year's past.

I hope they consider Alexander Rossi as the reserve driver as I would think he probably doesn't have his superlicense yet in order to compete in F1 (Currently in GP2). He will be competing in a full season of GP3 this year. He shows a lot of potential for an american.

That pic of him at the Mercedes GP intro are classic. He's probably thinking, "Damn I want to run up there and strangle Mike rt now. I get fired from oneof F1's crappiest teams......he takes 4 years (or whatever) off and then signs with the current World Champ team while I am stuck driving German stock cars......"
