I have thought of a new strategy for Andretti to make themselves impossible to be left out of F1:  hire Newey.

If anyone tries to suggest that Adrian Newey brings no value to F1 would automatically be disqualified from having an opinion on F1.  It gives Newey the opportunity to build an F1 team instead of disrupting an existing team.  Andretti is involved in a lot of series, which means there's room for Newey to try new things, if he wants.  Andretti has several bases of operation, so Newey can live where he wants.

Don't hold your breath

Jordan has been a sponsor on 825 bills and resolutions since 2011 (when Bill Track 50 began tracking legislation). But, if you narrow down to the bills where he was the main sponsor then you're left with 16. They are set out in this stakeholder page. Interestingly, not a single one of them has passed and become law.

I hate to admit it but Jordan is from here in Ohio. He's pretty well known for being crooked as a dog's hind leg.

Oh Jeri, you have hit on an amazing idea.
Andretti hiring Adrian Newey would almost immediately get the Andretti team full inclusion in F1.
I love this idea.

Don't feel too bad, we have Mitch McConnel and Rand Paul from Kentucky

I doubt the ex wresters at Ohio State where he was assistant
coach will be voting for him lately. His nickname is Gym and it's
not a complement

As they say here in Ohio: Jim Jordan can't bought - but he can be rented very reasonably.
