It's motorsport, isn't it?

Official: F1 to eat itself

Words cannot describe how I feel. But I have words to describe the situation – “Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely”

What an awful awful mess F1 is. Too many people with too much money, power or both. FOTA, the FIA, the FOM and CVC – they’re all just as bad as each other.

Ignore whose “side” you support and think of the bigger picture – this is a disastrous situation. Splits never work out for the best in any category. You have to be blind not to see that. But there are obviously a lot of blind people in F1 today.

Someone neutral needs to stand up and say something, to show these people that they are all making enormous mistakes in deviating from the true meaning of Formula 1. Everyone has lost sight of that. The fans have been totally shafted. FOTA might want it to look like they care but they don’t really. We are pawns in their game, whilst the new teams are pawns in the FIA’s game, as N.Technology said this week.

It’s an awful awful mess. Let’s just hope for a good race…or just a race…
