A double-dose of quotes from a couple of talented American youngsters, explaining why they're not exactly leaping at the chance to sign on to USF1 Vaporware, courtesy of 16th and Georgetown.

"I'm never going to count anything out because you never know whats going to happen but it has to be the right opportunity and it has to be a good chance at being competitive because when you look at Formula 1, you know currently as it sits, if your not in the top couple of teams you don't have a chance at winning and ultimately to me as a driver that's not all that interesting" - Graham Rahal

"If it's right I'd be dieing to go do that, but it has to be right and with a first year team I'm not so sure that my career could afford it because I have to go over and I have to perform. But having said that I would do what ever it took if we think it's right, it has to be right because it's all about timing and your career can end over there before it even starts, so we'll see maybe after a year or two of that team it there still interested in me." - Marco Andretti

    Who wouldn't that apply to?

    The more F1 gets "spec"... the better chances other F1 teams will have. '09 pre season testing has had some surprising names at the top of the charts.

    Three teams (McLaren, Force India, & Honda) are using Mercedes engines... we shall see if race results change

    AZZO45: They won't. It's only testing.

    We'll see. Toro Rosso out performed the main team Red Bull. Williams customer Toyotas out performed the factory Toyota team at many GPs.

    The gap between the "Have Nots" & the top F1 teams has been closing (just look at qualifying times & less DNFs compared to a decade ago).
