Another major American brand is being linked with the new-for-2010 Formula One team US F1.

Chad Hurley, the co-founder of YouTube, has been mentioned as a major investor of the Charlotte-based outfit headed by journalist Peter Windsor and technical expert Ken Anderson.

Now, it is believed the American electronics store Best Buy is interested in also getting involved, after its chief marketing officer Barry Judge revealed on his Twitter page that he recently met with US F1 officials.

"Thoughts on how a Best Buy partnership would help our entry into Europe?" he wrote inquisitively.

His reference to Europe is that Best Buy recently announced plans to open stores in the UK and other European countries for the first time in 2010.

Judge also said YouTube's Hurley was at the meeting and is indeed the "big investor" of the US F1 team.
