long term it might be a dead duck but until it dies i imagine there is still a lot of money to be made...wouldn't be a proper pyramid scheme otherwise.

Quite an interesting article, with the Formula One Promoters' Association criticizing the direction Liberty is taking F1.

TV subscriptions are expensive and racetrack tickets are expensive. In a word, F1 is expensive.


Promoters complain that TV subscriptions are expensive, but ask for a share in TV money.

Think their hands are tied a lot until the current F1 deal finishes with the teams...and doesn't help when none of the the teams seem to care either...they are just interested in short term money.

With respect, if they didn't know that when they bought it, they deserve to fail. I think the reality is, they really have no clue about what it should be and if the reports are correct neither do the manufacturers.

Thanks BJ.

Pringle seems to have Liberty figured out.

"If this continues, Formula 1 will be racing on second-rate circuits, if any at all," Pringle told The Daily Mail.

He added: "Everyone is disgruntled. Liberty's ideas are disjointed.

"We have all been compliant and quiet hitherto, but we have great concerns about the future health of the sport under the people who run it now."

Yeah, we need more places on the calendar that actually add to it. I wouldnít mind shortening the calendar by a couple of GPs

Of course they knew before they bought F1 - does not change the fact they can't make big changes until the current contract runs out.

The teams and manufacturers have never wanted to help push the sport on properly - they just look short term

People complained when Bernie Ecclestone was in charge and continue to complain now - nothing changes.
