P. Diddy decided that rap is not good enough for him, and that he wants more adrenaline in his life, this is why he decided to buy Formula One team. It seems he is not only a good rapper, but he is also very ambitious.

The rapper made the announcement to guests at a dinner to launch his new perfume, Unforgiven. "It seemed to be more than bravado on his part," reports one guest, adding that Diddy had previously spent much of the evening huddled in a corner with Lewis Hamilton, the youthful British racing star. Still, Diddy is known for being an impulsive chap. Pink-and-gold pimpmobiles may indeed roar around Silverstone. Alternatively, he may end up with a bling Scalextric.

Alright I wouldn’t mind a famous non-rapper, basketball, or football player owning a team.

WHY are you people labelling the man with this stereo-type about him and big wheels? Lets be real. Everybody has to start somewhere. For all we know he could be a die-hard F1 fan of the purest sort. But you know...the comments here stink of something else...but I’m not even going to go there. If he has the money to do it then I say go for it. Formula 1 could use the publicity, that’s for sure. It has been losing ground to the hog sty of NASCAR for years. A new high profile entrant is just what it needs.

He will probably make a deal to change the regulations, making wheel sizes 10 inches bigger. Die hard F1 fans of just regular F1 fans will absolutely hate if he bought a team. There will be less merchandise sales, ticket sales and everything else. I also can’t imagine what the name of the team would be........
