None. I'd rather have a grid full of teams that exist only to race. Teams that exist for marketing purposes and to promote a brand have a nasty habit of quitting the sport at short notice when things aren't going their way.

Kia. Then put a star in their reasonably priced car. Sato maybe.

I'd welcome any manufacturer so long as they don't do a BMW and spinelessly pull out the first time a mediocre season follows a title challenge. Of course, it's the inherent problem of having manufacturers in the sport that sudden decisions like those can be made, but when one looks at how Jaguar, Toyota and Honda at least kept trying and how BMW markets itself, it did look rather poor.

Me thinks Red Bull/Renault would be worried if Skoda joined.

Aston Martin
Jaguar
Lambo
Spyker (just for the colour scheme)
Would also like to see Honda, BMW, Ford and Audi/VW as engine suppliers, just for a bit of variety.

Imagine a grid of:

Red Bull - Renault
Ferrari - Ferrari
McLaren - Honda
Lotus - Renault
Mercedes - Mercedes
Lamborghini - VW
Sauber - Ferrari
Spyker - BMW
Jaguar - Ford
Aston Martin - Prodrive
Force India - Mercedes
Williams - Renault
Caterham - Renault

Torro Rosso and Marussia can sod off.

It won't happen, but I can dream. I'd like to see every team with a different badged engine, even if they're the same. Take VW, below they would supply McLaren, Toro Rosso and Marussia, but none even use the VW name. Also a couple of classic names to return.

Red Bull - Renault
Ferrari - Ferrari
McLaren - Porsche
Lotus - Toyota
Mercedes - Mercedes
Toro Rosso - Lamborghini
Sauber - Opel
Ligier - Peugeot
Force India - Ford
Williams - Honda
Caterham - Nissan
Marussia - Škoda
Brabham - BMW
Prodrive - Aston Martin
Minardi - Alfa Romeo

I'd only like to see more manufacturers come in as engine suppliers. Toyota, Honda, BMW and now Mercedes are showing it doesn't make sense to come in as a full 'works' team. Hopefully once Merc pull out and revert to just being an engine supplier that will be the end of it.
Hopefully the new regs will provoke this.

In fact, i think the sport NEEDS more engine suppliers, imagine if Renault decided to pull the plug, would we end up half the field running out-of-date engines, rebadged as Mecachrome?

volkswagon group. or any other manufacturer really. but i don't want to see them own the entire team. i want them to join as engine builders only. clearly that is expensive, but not as expensive as owning the entire team.
i would hope that just being an engine builder they would end up staying in the sport for a longer period of time.

It's used in English as a shorter word for a female part...
It's also misused here, as VAG is the old name for the Volkswagen-Audi Group. It has been just "Volkswagen Group" since the 90's.
