Richard Branson's Virgin Group interested in Honda F1 team
The 2009 F1 season begins in Australia on March 29, and officials for the ex-Honda racing team have been under frantic negotiations to get their stars aligned and cars on the starting grid ever since Honda announced it was pulling its support from the team late last year. Current speculation suggests that the team may use engines from Mercedes-Benz, though a decision on the team's fate would need to be made as quickly as possible.
F1 chief Bernie Ecclestone has said that he's personally spoken with Branson about the possibility and has offered public support for Virgin's bid.
