The 1Malaysia F1 Team!

'A Lotus-powered racing team, to be called the 1Malaysia F1 team, will take on giants like Ferrari, McLaren-Mercedes and Renault in the premier motorsports event next year.' - The Star online.

Take on the likes of Ferrari, McLaren-Mercedes and Renault? Just who are they kidding?

'The Malaysian-owned team will also mark the return of Proton-owned Lotus, the prestigious constructors who left F1 in 1994.' - The Star online.

What? This from the very same company (Proton, I mean) that's synonymous with it's power windows that don't work and countless other grievances? Imagine the F1 cars they produce? You just might see some a wing or two dropping off the car ... LOL!

'This is where the cars will be designed, manufactured and tested. It will be ‘Made-in-Malaysia, by Malaysians’ and of course, the pit-stops will be run by Malaysians.' - The Star online.

A total Malaysian run pit crew. Now this I would like to see!

'The 1Malaysia F1 team will be a partnership between the Government and the private sector.' - The Star online.

Don't we have anything better to use our money for? At times when all the other F1 team are thinking of ways to cut costs due to the financial crisis, we go and jump right into this extremely expensive sport? Pure genius!

Forgive me for being skeptical but when it comes to Malaysia and sports, I have my doubts. I don't normally write stuff like this on this blog. Usually that annoying Nick fellow is the one who posts stuff like these but I just couldn't help it.
