Next you know, Hyundai will employ M Schumacher, R Brawn, J Todt, as their technical advisors. Suddenly they will come up with an engine (quite likely CRDi) that will see Honda, Mercedes, Toyota etc blushing furiously.

I wouldn't put anything past these guys.

In my opinion, Hyundai should start from the basics and then move up to Formula 1. They should start with Formula 3, GP2, champ car etc. and then go to F1. Or they might be like Midland F1 or Super Aguri.
Look at Renault. They were engine suppliers for so long until they finally had a team of their own which could perform in the field.
Although Toyota is a relatively new team, the amount of money they spend on F1 is higher than McLaren or even Renault at times.

And all you fanboys of Hyundai raving about CRDi, it's no big deal. They might be one of the 1st manufacturers to introduce it in India, but they didn't invent it. They just use it in their cars. Any manufacturer could have introduced it later on. But they priced it steeply. The only reason others didn't introduce it before them was because of the price. An Indica D would have cost 4.5-5 lakhs then.

CRDi technology is already used by many other manufacturers....
If a car manufacturer can deliver what it has delivered, and at that price, it deserves accolades... Even more so when it has been able to deliver that before others and at much competitive prices...

Just like Ford and Daewoo get the credit for introducing fuel injection in India.
