F1 team anybody?.....Pass me my wallet


Eddie Irvine has not lost interest in running his very own formula one team. Eddie, and billionaire Russian backer Roustam Tariko, popped up in the grand prix paddocks last year, looking into buying Jordan or Minardi.

But now, Irvine, 40, has told the 'Irish Independent' that the pair are looking at starting a team from scratch, perhaps in 2008.....''There are no teams for sale at the minute,'' he told the newspaper. ''It will be a great challenge, but Roustam wants to do it and we've got the money.''

F1 Wizard says......."Tariko made his fortune in Vodka and now owns a Russian bank!.....Eddie's not short of a few bob to. He was paid handsomely by Ferrari & Jaguar and also owns a global property empire"....nice work if you can get it  ::)
