Super Aguri ... what will happen next...Oppurtunity for Spice Energy

I always knew that this is goingo happen. Somehow my gut feeling was Super Aguri deal might not go ahead. And now Honda has also denied of Super Aguri bail out.
The team in a short span has performed well and last year outpacing the Honda team itself.
Now the problem is the team needs a lot of money within next 3 days to run in next weekend at Spain. Will that be possible? A very big question. Honda might not be able to rescue the team..reason as per Honda the team has not approched them till now. I am guessing honda is infact afraid of last year's SA's perfomance.

Now because os custmer car regulation for 2010 many buyers might not even want to buy this team. The team has now squizzed to a very small number.

Good oppurtunity for Spice Energy to place this team along side Force India. Force has done a great after the spyker take over. And same is expected from spice after looking at the A1Gp turn around.

NK is still a very controlled driver and has got a lot of testing experience.

As per the latest interview Mr Andaleeb Sehgal wants to buy a team and groom Indian drivers. and this is a perfect time for him to showcase some potential to buy the team.

So what's the bet..a second team from India....wait for another 3 days

New F1 game for PS3/PS2 in this generation??

It is really funny that new game has still not arrived.
having said that, I hope it should not arrive this year. The reason quite simple new tracks.
I am expecting to race Singapore, Abudhabi, Valencia and even Fuzi using the F1 cars. If sony/any other company comes out with the game this year we would not see the new circuits.
Unless the race is complete F1 is not going to give the rights for game developement.
F1 game for PS3 is really good and PS2 is also nice, but one cannot play these games for 5 years.
Hence I am expecting a new set of games to come in 2009 with new tracks, new team (Force India F1), slick tyre option (Currently it is only HARD and RAIN) etc and some excellent graphics and also some exciting features.... like Mallya type Parties in the games
