    Jenson had a drive, In a McLaren and decided on Hot hatch over prestige and finance,probably the worst decision in his career.

    That would be cool of Virgin did takeover Honda's f1 program, i would still like to see Jenson racing again, i think he is very underated as a driver/talent, he just hasnt had a decent enough car under him. Plus having virgin in F1 would be similar to the Redbull team, injecting a bit of fun back into the sport, imagine the Virgin dollybirds on the grid holding the name placards

    It's interesting, but equally disappointing, how there has been a general shift away from manufacturers to commercial entities operating in F1

    Effectively there are only two manufacturer teams now; Ferrari Renault
    All the others are entities or ties between a manufacturer and other main sponsor
    McLaren - Mercedes
    Red Bull Racing
    BMW Sauber
    and so on

    To have the Virgin group enter motorsport is an interesting change, however it is clearly a marketing and advertsing tool, albeit a very expensive one
    However, with the increased racing in Asia this does make some sense due to the apparent poor or lack of advertising that Virgin Group can do in this region

    It's actually a recognised fact on the grid that he is one of the best drivers. Just a lot of bad luck/cars.
