Forsythe wants CART-F1 merger

CART team owner - and the biggest shareholder in the CART business - Gerry Forsythe says that he thinks it would be a great idea for American-based series to merge with F1.

"I think a partnership between F1 and CART would be totally beneficial for CART," Forsythe said. "I think that taking CART private would be a good thing. With the right partnership, it would be much better for CART than the way it's structured now. There are a lot of synergies that could be put to work for both series. In October I put together 19 pages of what I thought would be the benefits for F1 and CART in a partnership. At some point I would like to see that happen."
