Quoting Bill142 (Reply 4): There are rumors doing the rounds that McLaren are looking at setting up a second team. There are still 2 avaliable team slots.
I think its only a matter of time before you see junior teams poping up backed by bigger manufacturers. Probably using year old components but helping their drivers develop within the series.
There was a big news article on this in Autosport the other day. The Dubai backed McLaren junior team is now dead, but instead this one is supposed to have far eastern backing and would be in for 2007, with Wurz and McLaren protege Lewis Hamilton as drivers.
Just when I thought I could see light at the end of the tunnel, it was some B*****d with a torch bringing me more work

The current concorde agreement frowns upon second team ownership. And if a second team is owned then they don't get an extra vote on various issues. However, like any true F1 team, they would find a way to circumvent the rules.
