I wish this team did better - I like The Netherlands as a country, and Spyker cars are kinda sweet - but it will be really hard for these guys to get anywhere in the standings. I have no idea how Minardi stuck around for so many years at the bottom and how they actually generated cash. I figured sponsors would stay away from low, low teams. I don't know what teams like this and Super Aguri are even doing in F1. What do they sit around at the beginning of they year and make their goal? Getting a point?
    Most of (if not, all of) Spyker F1's sponsors are Dutch

    I know - that's why Doornbos shoulda been the second driver!

    Unfortunately Spyker doesn't have the funds to match what Red Bull is paying Doornbos (yet Spyker has 4 test drivers...)

    Also, Adrian Sutil has reportedly binned the new car at the super-fast Copse Corner this morning, putting an early end to the week's shakedown test. Oops! Not the best start for the new car!

    Surely you are forgetting his epic 2005 USGP drive in which he stunned all and finished a remarkable third? :P

    Spyker just threw away their only driver with a podium finish...

    He was faster than his team mates at jordan and MF1 most of the time though, AND he does hold the record of the rookie with most consecutive finishes...
    you may say i am a Monteiro fanboy now...

    Don't worry, Monteiro can join the Portuguese Lola team in LMS (Chamberlain-Synergy) I think they'd love to have him on board
