Ford eyes F1 return

Would Cosworth again do engines for Ford?

(GMM) German-language publication Speed Week has named Ford as a potential candidate to return to formula one after the new V6 rules debut in 2014.

Honda, having pulled out at the end of 2008, has already announced its return with McLaren in 2015, but Toyota and BMW have denied speculation they are also tempted by the sport's incoming, automobile industry-relevant engine rules.

Speed Week, however, is now mentioning Ford.

Ford bought Sir Jackie Stewart's team in 1999, rebranding it Jaguar Racing, but pulling out of F1 at the end of 2004.

The Milton Keynes based team was subsequently sold to current champions Red Bull and their engine manufacturer, Cosworth, to Kevin Kalkhoven and Gerald Forsythe.
