yes, strikes me as an interesting back-door entry into the high tech world of
formula 1 (not to mention wrc).
wouldn't ford be pissed? i'm sure there must be some sort of parachute clause,
but that technology is worth 10's of millions in saved r&d if, as rumoured,
audi want to go sports cars or f1.
makes me wonder if that hasn't been the intention all along? objective 1: make
bmw pay above the odds for rolls (and bmw's *does* seem a little pissed in the
last couple of days), objective 2, get cosworth which, by *any* measure, has to
be the jewel in the crown...
it would make bmw look a little foolish. i mean to say, rolls royce? what's
second prize, bristol :-)
