Speedy deletion[edit]

So why is the owner of a Formula One team and runner of cars in other categories not notable enough to warrant speedy deletion?--Diniz(talk) 23:46, 7 March 2009 (UTC)

Honestly, I would have thought that a PROD or AFD would be more appropriate - if I hadn't logged in just now the article could have been deleted without me knowing about it until it was too late.--Diniz(talk) 23:48, 7 March 2009 (UTC)

I have to go to sleep now, so I would appreciate it if the article is left alone until I have the chance to respond to any specific problems in the morning. I've left a message at the F1 WikiProject concerning this deletion.--Diniz(talk) 00:02, 8 March 2009 (UTC)

I agree with Diniz that a speedy was not the proper course of action here; if concerns about notability were present here than a prod would have been better. The very least that can be done is to wait until Diniz is able to improve the article until it unequivocally satisfies the inclusion criteria. Apterygial 01:29, 8 March 2009 (UTC)
While I do believe that this article should go to AfD, the article itself doesn't claim notability and there's no inclusion guidelines on notability of an F1 team. Under A7, the article would have to have gained coverage from reliable and independent sources (grandprix.com doesn't count). Here is the google news search I did for coverage. Most of the articles written could possibly be from reliable, independent sources but they're subscription articles. Diniz, I see that you're not new to wiki, just find a few reliable sources and post them. OlYellerTalktome 06:22, 8 March 2009 (UTC)
I should point out that GP.com is considered highly reliable, is much respected in F1 and is used in several F1 FAs. Apterygial 06:25, 8 March 2009 (UTC)
I wasn't commenting on its reliability, having links to the website are founded but it's not an independent and reliable source that can prove notability. For instance, a UFC fighter isn't notable just because the UFC website has a bio on him. OlYellerTalktome 06:33, 8 March 2009 (UTC)
GrandPrix.com isn't the official site of Formula One, that's Formula1.com. It is however an accredited press site. 4u1e (talk) 06:49, 8 March 2009 (UTC)
Ah ok. I'm still not sure if that's independent but I don't really care at this point. If someone else has a problem with it, they can take it to AfD. OlYellerTalktome 06:56, 8 March 2009 (UTC)
