I noticed a comment in the Paul Tan site today.
-Want a job with the lotus F1 team?-
Apparently, a day after the Star newspaper (Malaysia) advertised jobs for the new F1 team they got 600,000 applications.
For all the negative publicity surrounding this project, a lot of people obviously want to participate in it!
