Kumho coming in to F1?

The Korean tyre company Kumho is rumoured to be on the verge of announcing a plan to enter F1 to improve the company's worldwide visibility. Much will depend on the F1 tyre regulations which are announced in the next few days but we would expect to see the tyre war intensifying rather than calming down. While this might provide a little more uncertainty in races, it is going to be tough for the newcomers to take on the big players who have years of F1 experience.
