Williams for sale?

Believe it or not, Grove based Williams – one of F1's most successful ever grand prix teams – is reportedly in buyout talks with a Korean consortium. Former BAR principal David Richards, and Korean multinationals Hyundai and Samsung, are thought involved.

Richards, also Prodrive boss and world rally impresario, told F1 Racing magazine: ''I haven't spoken to Frank (Williams) or Patrick (Head), but I'm keeping a close watch.'' And what about Hyundai? ''Possibly — I've no idea.'' It is thought that Hyundai will badge the Cosworth V8 as part of the deal as the company does not have the know-how to build an F1 engine themselves.
