    I just read that the Manor Grand Prix entry that was granted in the summer will transform in the weeks ahead into a team called Virgin F1.

    Wonder if Sir Richard will make cheap airfares available on Virgin to go to the races? that would be mighty kind of him - i.e. fan friendly.......

    Carol - oh yes, good afternoon to you Steve!

    After appearing trackside at Monza, Sir Richard Branson's next stop on the Formula One calendar will be the Abu Dhabi finale.

    It is there that the British billionaire is expected to announce a major tie-up with the new Manor team, in which the outfit could be rebranded 'Virgin F1' for the 2010 season and beyond.

    Virgin entered F1 as Brawn's most visible sponsor this year, but the British team's unexpected success meant Branson was not prepared to pay the higher rate for a ramped up collaboration into the future.

    Brawn GP has already confirmed that Virgin is not involved in the team's plans beyond November's Abu Dhabi season finale.

    We lose Flav but gain a Virgin.
    Someone has a sense of humor.

    Hi Carol Hope so one of the good guys Richard B, but does he really know what he is letting himself in for..with this sport.

    Flav and Virgin just don't sit right together somehow. :eek:

    Here's an interesting prediction of mine ...

    What if Flav and Pat resigned amidst the hoopla because they are going to head up Sir Richard's team?

    Flav's time will be occupied trying to stay out of jail at this point and the idea that Max or his hand picked successor would let him back into the sport is a nonstarter.

    surely just a joke as the prescribed penalities for the duo should be total exclusion from F1 and Manor COULD be re-named Virgin F1
