    Just mentioning here that the Indian F1 circuit has just passed a mandatory inspection by the FIA.

    They must have been working overtime ... the last I heard was when Karun Chandok went there for a drive earlier this year and it was very, very far from being finished.

    How ridiculous ... Iran wants to host FIA motorsports events up to but excluding F1

    http://www.jamesallenonf1.com/2011/09/and-you-thought-going-to-bahrain-might-be-risky/

    I cannot imagine any drivers, teams being prepared to go there for reasons of security and politics.

    Plus, the US has imposed economic sanctions on Iran. It is a grey area in practice but it makes it difficult for companies that have business dealings in the US from also having business dealings in Iran.

    Interesting that VW would use the parent company brand and not say, Lamborghini, for a foray into F1.

    I think, Porsche or Audi. Lambo has no motorsport history, bugatti had it but many many years ago.

    I was thinking Bugatti for a minute, but that brand has now been relegated to Ultra-Exclusive, minimal production territory.

    I thought Lambo would be a good fit because, to your point, they have minimal Motorsports history. Lambo's sister brands have already carved out a well established identity and dominate histories in prototype, GT/Cup, and Rally racing (edit: No sure if they're still using Skoda for rally). I would be shocked if VW chose to use them for F1.
