    Re: Rumor: Apple latest bidder for Formula 1 race series

    So will Apple insist that its F1 cars be built in China and have Apple Car Play installed. F1 has been losing audience and fans, Apple would really put the nail into F1's coffin.

    Might as well turn F1 into a another Pokeman contest and get it over with.

    I do not believe a word... Apple and F1? Never. It would not look good in their environmental book, especially if they are trying to promote an ELV or some sort of modern mass commuting.

    Re: Rumor: Apple latest bidder for Formula 1 race series

    I agree, it doesn't make sense, if anything it would be something with a better "image", something that would resonate more with a larger crowd and more politically correct than F1 imo.

    Re: Rumor: Apple latest bidder for Formula 1 race series

    It does seem a bit fantastic, not to mention out of character for the company. However there are some "car guys" at Apple. Eddie Cue, for example, is on the Board of Ferrari. Maybe it's not actually Apple but some group that includes one or more Apple executives. So, for example, if, say, Eddie Cue were part of some negotiations, it might lead to a rumor that it was Apple.


    Re: Rumor: Apple latest bidder for Formula 1 race series

    I can see Wanda buying them. They are buying up all sports and entertainment businesses they can.

    I'm a car guy too but if I was at Apple calling the shots I would not touch the current F1 farce with a ten foot pole though...

    Re: Rumor: Apple latest bidder for Formula 1 race series

    I agree, Apple seems an unlikely customer for such a deal, but, as I said, perhaps some Apple executive(s), acting privately, is part of a group that is a possible buyer, and that that circumstance is what brought Apple into the rumor.

    It's also entirely possible that someone is just starting stupid rumors.

    Smiley Agreed. Someone needs to be completely nuts to get involved with that F1 circus right now. Smiley Maybe Kanye West? Smiley Smiley Smiley

    Would make more sense to buy Formula E and compete vs Formula 1...

    Smiley Funny...I was thinking the same regarding Formula E.

    Re: Rumor: Apple latest bidder for Formula 1 race series

    Again, I think Wanda should add it to their entertainment and sports portfolio. They have the deep pockets to do it right. 


    Re: Rumor: Apple latest bidder for Formula 1 race series

    Apple would be crazy to enter the automobile manufacturing business because of the low margins.   Apple buying F1 is the very height of insanity and should be disregarded.

    I doubt it will happen. Formula E would, maybe, make sense for Apple but F1? Never ever.
