    Not sure who is bidding on this, but you most definitely don't want to be doing that. Formula One will 100% lodge a DRS against the winner. I have a client who runs a "Hire an F1 car" business, he has one of the old Jaguars from the 90's and said that he's been burned a few times buying domains from different places, anything with F1 in or Formula 1 was almost instantly DRS'd.

    Nice domain but, there's only one thing F1 means.

    The link between the two is too vague compared to the price it will go for.

    You buy a domain to represent something and F1 does not automatically shout IT support. It shouts something else.

    In any case. who is going to start a business around that domain knowing that one day they may have to give it up. Just too risky

    F1.co.uk doesn't look like it's been DRS'd.
