USF1 eyes Kyle Busch for future race seat

USF1 eyes Kyle Busch for future race seat

Lots of speculation, but no facts from USF1
Sporting director Peter Windsor has named NASCAR's Kyle Busch as an ideal driver for the new USF1 team in 2011.

Windsor, who with Ken Anderson aims for their Charlotte-based team to debut next season, said he keeps up to date with the 24-year-old's progress "on a daily basis almost".

"If I was Kyle, I'd be saying to myself, yeah, those guys all talk the talk, let's see what they do, let's see what the car's like. Let's see what the race shop is like. Fair enough," he told USA Today.

Windsor revealed that he has already met with Busch's business team, and is confident his talents would transfer to Formula One.

"If he wants to jump in our car next year for doing some demonstrations here in the States, he's very welcome to do that," he added.

Busch is under contract to his Sprint Cup team Joe Gibbs Racing until the end of 2010.

Marco Andretti, the son of 1993 McLaren driver Michael and the grandson of 1978 world champion Mario, has also been linked with USF1, but the team is likely to make its plans for 2010 without an American driver.

"It's not because I don't rate him (Andretti), but I don't think he'd be right driver at the right time, or equally that we're the right team," said Windsor.

This really surprises me. Of all the great open wheel talent out there, they consider this tin top jerk? I just can't get over that guitar smashing incident.

Agreed. There are a LOT of more qualified drivers out there. F1 would be a huge and potentially fatal wake-up call for NASCAR drivers.
