I had a feeling they were pulling out when they stop announcing new body parts for the F1 09.

The BMW Sauber is an insane piece of machinery. It says something for how advanced the entire motor-sport is when that car doesn't suffice.

Really though, do you guys think they will ever get back into it? If so, when?

Good question! I'm guessing in a couple of years. Most likely they will start as an engine supplier and if all goes well in a couple of years they will step in the game as a factory team again, but that's gonna be a good while from now. I will miss them dearly as well. =(

They were in then out in the 80s, from like 80-87, though that was purely as an engine supplier. They got back in in 97 or something.

So who knows. They'll probably get back in at some point. I can't imagine them not coming back at some point, especially if the whole enviornment in F1 becomes less toxic.

I guess it could be considered a smart move considering the economy and the way other companies are struggling so badly.
