It's not possible. Formula 1 owners don't hire drivers off just one good season. Not to mention he destroys too much equipment. He's going to stay in Nascar, enjoy the next year or two of success and then coattail off that the rest of his career.

You are right as far as I am concerned. He's making a ton of money and gets to drive about whatever he wants. He would be a nobody in that crowd and it would be like starting over as a rookie. If it ain't broke don't fix it. He is at the top of the game here and has too much to risk by going to F-1! I see where Franchiti is going back to Indy Car and all others that have switched have had limited success to say the least. He would a fish out of water in F-1!

People seem to hate young Busch more out of jealousy than anything else. Some drivers can drive anything out of feel, they don't need perfect setups to perform they adapt their driving to make the vehicle work, Kyle is one of those drivers.
He can get it done in anything and he doesn't wreck or cause wrecks near as much as his haters like to claim. It seems as though if he's in the same state as where a wreck happens a certain fan club will try to pin the blame on him.
Look what he did his first time in an open whell dirt car at Prelude, Tony said he had never seen someone making passes that high in the marbles. He finds a way to make the cars do what he wants.
This kid has talent and a bright future if he can keep his head straight and I don't think F1 is out of the question with someone who can adapt as easily as he does.
Remember folks he's still very young

I agree. F1 would be a good place for KB. I don't know if he would take the cut in pay though.

Wrong! You can't throw an F1 car around, and "carry" a car that is just a little off. If you could do that, USAC and WoO drivers would dominate the upper levels of open wheel racing, like they did until the ground effects cars came to be. Besides, in F1, if you run into someone to get around them, you destroy your car too. THAT rules out Buschie!

I guess the only way to find out if Kyle is good enough for F1 is after he test an F1 car toyota is gonna set him up at the end of this year. Then we'll see.

Wonder what F1 team would be interested in him. Perhaps we could all send a few dollars each to the team owner to help finance this move. Let's see where did I leave my check book??????????

He wouldn't look so bad if his eyelids weren't too small. Shrub is just a geeky looking character, but he can drive the hell out of a car.
Sometimes to the point of excess but he will put his foot down.

Nice, maybe you could steal a few more zingers by broadening your comedy viewing!
