Those of you who keep an eye on real estate in the United States might have been surprised to see that the US F1 factory at 990 Twin Lakes Parkway in Charlotte has been put up for sale for $3.15m. The lease on the property lasts until June 2014 and the US F1 factory for sale brochure says that the 33,690 Sq. Ft. facility is in immaculate condition, having had $620,000 spent on it in recent months. The factory was listed for sale on February 12.
I did not have time to talk to the team before I posted the original story and I see that it has caused a lot of comment. The team says that it is the tenant and that the owner of the building is fully entitled to sell the property with the tenant in situ. The team will remain where it is and this will have no effect on the 2010 F1 programme.
All that is now needed is a second driver… and some cars.
