For those of you unable to watch the official announcement of the USF1 team at noon today, SPEED TV released a quick, five-minute clip of the two principles – Ken Anderson and Peter Windsor – being interviewed. Unfortunately, there was very little information divulged beyond our exclusive report last month. But if you want to see the two men behind USF1, hit the jump. Hat tip to DC!

      Most of the technology in F1 comes from the US? WTW? Americans dont know how to build cars that anyone wants to drive let alone super sport cars, what is he smoking??

      This will be a big failure! I'll be surprised if their car ever lasts long enough to finish a race!

      Sadly, these guys breathe their own hype and smoke the same stuff GM's management does. It will not fly!

      Its over before it even starts if they chose Danica Patrick, shoot if they really want to make a impact they should pull Schume out of retirement.... then USF1 might have a chance of doing what Toyota has not been able to do with the biggest F1 budget (win a race).

        Toyota even has a freaking schumacher on their team and still cannot get to the podium. Sad. Just drop out already and give the slot to someone who can do something with it.
        • 5 Years Ago
        Not since 2007 they haven't had one.

      come on! Do you even understand how expensive F1 is?? Do you even know it has NOTHING to do "passion". Unless they have a manufacturer engine that's up-to-date and not a second hand engine from those constructors, THERE IS NO WAY TO WIN IT ANYWAY.
      And what does "most of the technology in F1 comes from the US" have anything to do with basing it in the US?! OMG unless its the cost of doing business there is cheaper is better (VERY TEMPORARILY) that's the only reason.

      Sorry guys but, granted its a good thing to have a US team, its not going to be a winning team unless its supported by a top engine manufacturer and even they want teams of their own now!

      I got goosebumps listening to the interview...

      • 5 Years Ago
      WIN!!!

      I am so HAPPY

      Excellent.... this is good for America. We need somebody that can turn right... I am going to nominate myself.lol Let's wait and see before we start choosing drivers. There are some good young American drivers in euro series that are promising. Let's also remember that Scott Speed has experience with F1 and he definitely is not slow.
        • 5 Years Ago
        It's all relative. Scott Speed is a good enough racing driver, but he was consistently at the back of the field in F1. Bourdais was one of the most capable and accomplished drivers in Champ Car, and he was handily outpaced by still-wet-behind-the-ears Vettel. It's a completely different ball game in F1. The competition is fierce and the cars themselves are brutal.

      I couldn't be happier about this unless they hired me (I live in Charlotte)...and yes, I will send them my resume.
      • 5 Years Ago
      While I will cheer them on, I also will support Hamilton and Vettel (just a fan for some reason)
      • 5 Years Ago
      Hell Yeah!!!!!

      This serves as more encouragement to finally attend a championship.

      Any word on who will be supplying the engines?
      • 5 Years Ago
      maybe we will get to use the gm wind tunnell, oh wait
