USF1 receives backing from YouTube

The new Team US F1 has pulled off a major coup by securing the services of YouTube co-founder and CEO Chad Hurley for its 2010 assault on grand prix racing, as AUTOSPORT predicted.
Following weeks of speculation the USF1 team has completed a deal with video sharing website YouTube ahead of its first season on the Formula One grid next year.

That and probably some sort of streaming feed of the races most likely. Maybe even live feeds.

The details of the deal are not public, but Hurley is the primary investor of the team.
Hurley says: “Getting in on the ground floor of a project of this size and scope is a tremendous opportunity, and I look forward to helping shape the US F1 vision and corporate strategy for years to come.”
