I was thinking this the other day. I remember a topic a while back about buying shares in a team, but imagine buying an entire F1 team.

Who would be the drivers?
Who would be the management?
What position would we end up in 2013 WDC and WCC?
Who would be the team principal?
etc?

Just thought it be a bit of a fun topic while we wait for next season.

First off, the name of the team would obviously be IAMS HOW F1 Team

Main Sponsor: IAMS
Secondary Sponsor: KittyKat

Driver 1: Benson Cotton
Driver 2: Frederik Alfonso
Reserve Driver: Sumo Brenna
Test Driver 1: Kimberly Rammikon
Test Driver 2: Hulko Nikkon

Team Principle: Russel Brawnd
Designer #1: Audrie Norway
Designer #2: Raw Burn

The car would be purple, orange and white to match the sponsor colours...and because it looks cool.

In the first year we'd expect to be in the top 6 WCC and top 8 WDC.

They'd be disqualified surely for just copying everything off other cars wouldn't they...? ;)

Judging by the level of support they get on their respective 'official' threads, Kimi Raikkonen and Mark Webber would be our drivers.

I would give Cucumber Karthikeyan a seat for the team in a instant. Also, could I be a part of the Young Drivers Program? :nod:

All of you aspiring to hire Newey...we'll never be able to afford him. He's far too loyal. We have to offer him some hair. Or find another way.

I'd hire some ex spies, assuming they had just quit for family reasons and not been fired because they were no good! :lol: We will succeed using underhand and blatantly illegal means where Andrea Moda failed.

It'll be much cheaper, we'll have a good start to the season. Then, when Red Bull start catching up, we can just send the spies over again for a spot of extortion and intimidation. This will work for their drivers too.

I like the replies so far, my team would be:

Who would be the drivers? a women perhaps Sabine Schmitz, just because I want to see a women in F1. Second driver would be James May to make sure the women is better :D
Who would be the management? Well of course it would be the top gear team (I know they don't know anything about F1 but it be lolz)
What position would we end up in 2013 WDC and WCC? Last - but the car design would be amazing ...que the music
Who would be the team principal? jeremy clarkson of course.

Think there is a theme going on in this reply ;)
