Another View on F1 Teams

In relation to my previous post on what a team needs in order to win in Formula 1, Grand Prix.com has a perspective on what kind of team can win a championship.

The takeaway:

The crux of the matter is how the team is run and whether it is run directly from Japan or whether the European end of the operation is left to manage its own affairs and reporting back to Japan on a regular basis. Traditionally in F1, teams which are run direct by car manufacturers tend not to work very well as the attitudes needed to be successful in F1 are very different to those needed to run a car company.
