I don't dismiss this as a possibility, but I question the validity of this information. I could go and make any rumour about any driver moving, and it all could be possible, but it's bullshit as far as beeing fact becasue I concocted it.

Sure Ford would get howls of disgust from the Holden faithful by mirroring the HRT outfit. They should see it as a compliment.
Ford need a team that is directly associated with the road going
performance arm....but it must be done better than FTR.
Not possible! With no disrespect to the drivers at all, but there would be too many competing ego's, the sponsors wouldn't get value for money as all the the points of focus would be in the one team, the team itself would have to supply an individual engineer to each driver of equal capability as well as mechanics. If there is anyone who thinks that Skaife and Brighty each get EXACTLY the same equipment and service I would be surprised.
It would be nice to see all of those guys in the same team, but financially I don't think it's possible.
I'm tipping Bezzy to 00 Motorsport, Lowndes and Marcos at SBR, Rusty at Shell with Steve, Rat with Larko, Cam McLean or Ellery with Glenn. I think Weel with stay with Ford and
Briggsy will stay with Ford (Tony and Max).
Just a thought!
