Lola are set to return to Formula One in 2010! Great news!

There were rumours about Lola coming back but it seems it is all but confirmed.

Another car on the grid and they will hopefully have more success this time round.

This is great news. This 40mill cap is a silly idea not because of the cost cut because of the two-tier championship. Lola coming back is fantastic but the FIA needs to see sense so we don't end up with only 10-16 cars on the grid. This was supposed to bring in team not to lose them. If Mosely sticks to his guns then he is going against the reason he made it a rule.

welcome back Lola but back in 1997 there was no global recession so will they only get back if Max gets his way;and maybe we'll see the John Player Special back

Brilliant, let's hope to see those lovely aquamarine March's back, and maybe Zakspeed as well.

This sport has the potential to become even greater than it already is. It all comes down to how the hierachy go about pleasing all of the teams involved.

I don't want them to miss the chance of some of the greats returning, and even newcomers joining - however, a Formula One without Ferrari and McLaren is no Formula One...

Absolutely great news,one of Britain's most successful teams returning to F1.This company has won Indy 500's,Le Mans,as well as pretty well every major championship worldwide.Their name is one of innovation,excellent design and most of all success.This is exactly what the Formula needs,fabulous news.Now Mr. Mosley please work with the teams in F1 to produce a race series in which costing and common sense is supported by every team involved and acts to bring further teams in as well,you've never had a better time to really build for the future and bring back great names such as Lola.

Interesting choice of header; Her name was Lola.

Is this the pertinent verse & will all the sad & old be tempted back by the new low rent F1?

Her name is Lola, she was a showgirl,
but that was 30 years ago, when they used to have a show

Big question; how long into the new era before the issue of minium qualy times rears it's head again, 107% I recall.

Lola the worst ever F1 team never to qualify for a race!! Monteverdi were bad but I think Lola has to have been the worst.

I can see them being 1 minute behind every other car in qualifying!! laugh

They will once again be a mockery..

Its great to have new names in F1 (even if its an old name revamped!) The more teams the better, but they have to be competitive, or its not worth being there!!!
Ferrari have to realise that if they are not involved with F1 it will still go on, they are not the be all and end all of the sport. life and F1 will still be there if they depart, and so it is with all the teams complaining about budget caping.
Although I believe there should be some sort of budget cap, I think Max Mosely has cut to the quick a bit too sharply, this should have been discused by the teams and a happy medium arrived at. say 150m in 2010, 125m in 2011, 100m in 2012 and so on. I think Ferrari, McLaren, Red Bull, Toyota and Renault are struggling with the thought of not having 250-300m to spend there way out of trouble!
bring in more new teams but keep it as a single tier competition please!!!

Won't happen - the Piranha club will putz it up again. The fact that the team principals salaries are coming out of the $40m would have anything to do with why they are so anti would it? Lets see what they say when they get off Flav's super yacht tomorrow.
