Some more useful than others!
Personally, I reckon they should have chosen BERK. They are a load of them, after all.

P.S. Berk is from the Cockney Rhyming Slang, and is short for Berkeley Hunt. So it all comes back to the same thing in the end....

If the French had their way it would be something like, L’association de constructeurs de Formule Une or ACFU. I don't think there's much there to offend anyone, except getting the French pronunciation a bit wrong?

I wondered what that man in the car park at Monza was trying to say.

FOCA wouldn't actually work because the C would be for Constructors and not all of them are. Indeed they are at pains to say that Teams are just as important as Constructors. In the light of recent months, you'd have to say they got that one right.

The problem with FOCA is that there was a FOCA (there may well still be one)
