March of the names

Thanks to the potential cost cap for F1 next season, a raft of new teams have applied to appear on the 2010 grid – including some blasts from the past.

March haven’t been involved in motorsport since 1993, but the name still exists as a non-trading registered company (owned by Swindon Town football club chairman Andrew Fitton) and they’ve applied to join F1 next year.

They’re keeping schtum on details, though.

Along with March, Brabham have today confirmed that they too have made an application to the FIA.

Owned by German businessman Franz Hilmer – who bought the assets to Super Aguri after they went pop in 2008 – Brabham are hoping to roll onto next year’s grid.

But this has got us thinking about which other teams we’d like to reappear.

How about Tyrell (pictured)? Or Wolf?

Personally, I want Hesketh to come back. Driven by Colin Farrell and The Stig.

Who do you want to see return?

With Max Mosley saying to Swiss mag Motorsport Aktuell today that he told all of the FOTA teams, “If you want to draw up your own rules, then you can organise your own championship,” you might be in with a shout.

Hell, you might even want to apply to race under one of your favoured old names yourself. It seems anything is possible at the moment.
