Horrible news. FOTA deserves to live under the evil of Stalin/Mao/Hitler/Bush. The teams just folded a royal flush to a busted straight. Unless Bernie agreed to a 85/15 split, immediate payment of all outstanding sums (tens of millions) due under the MOU, and a 50% reduction in the cost to track promoters and halving ticket prices, reinstating some of the old venues, giving the teams 100% control over the regs, and a total dismantling of the WMSC and all the crooked incompetent dopes at the FIA immediately replacing Mosley with Ron Dennis or Stoddart, I can't see a bit of good coming out of this. We are now stuck with the boneheaded organization that gave us the Spa decision, TMDs being movable aero devices and stewards who don't look at the video before issuing a ruling. This is just another travesty in a long line of self-afflicted abuses. The teams will certainly regret it. The fans will certainly get an inferior show and the regs will still suck.
What kind of goofy philosophy has the teams giving technical welfare to low budget entrants? Perhaps Ferrari should be forced to let Williams use all their wind tunnel scale models. Maybe Newey should be forced to work 45% of the time for Manor... just to help them out. Ugggh! I am disgusted beyond belief.
BTW, Cosworth still @ 20K rpm? Why not? After all we want to be "fair"... ugggh.
