SennaTheGreat has a lot of promise if they can keep it on the circuit!

Thinking about it, could this be a "warning" to the FIA? Basically all the fota teams saying "Wheels are in motion to set up our series, give us what we want or we will go". Remember, this is the small hours of Friday morning

But why would they do that given that they've warned countless times already?

This is genuine this time, I fear. And I really hope it doesn't spill over into the race weekend. I really hope not. But...

No, this is real. Actually, they've been "gone" for weeks, maybe months. All the rest was window-dressing to make sure the legalisms were covered.

If Bernie goes with FOTA and the Manufacturers, IMO it just shows the greed of him!

So what about the line in FOTA's statement about lowering ticket prices for fans, I can't see Bernie helping in that regard.

Hooray I say, although I would be sad to see KERS abandoned but that's another debate.

it seems very short on details, but the intent certainly sends a very loud message.

So it should too. The management of this sport has long been one of the most egocentric dictatorships in world sport.

for the record, i agree with budget caps, but it seems as though this whole thing is about something far greater than 2010 rule regulations...

Oh ...

Anyone who thinks this is good, no matter how much you hate Max and Bernie, is an absolute fool.

The fall out of this will rock this sport to it's very foundations.

Single seater racing will never be the same again...
