Honda is out because of KERS. They don't want to admit Prius Hybrid is more superior.

Economy just gave them an out.

Renault should be next. Follow by Toyota.

It will become a 2 horse race between Ferrari and McLaren which are both profitable in the sport.

May as well since FIA stand for Ferrari International Assistance anyway.

Definitely. Because Toyota was going to take the Synergy Drive right out of a Prius and bolt it into their F1 car, and Honda was going to bolt in their IMA system from the Insight, and the Toyota F1 would totally get 1 mpg better in city driving. Look out Monaco!
