In light of recent political manoeuvrings by Ferrari and RBR, both with themselves in mind, it made me wonder who of what has the most control over the increasingly unstable sport. Whilst all have some sort of of power, vote for the ones you believe to be the most influential. Bernie and FOM: They control where all the rights go and ultimately most Formula One money passes through them at some point. Jean and the FIA: Officially in power, but as was seen with the blown diffusers they can't make whatever rules they like. FOTA and Co: 12 selfish and contrasting viewpoints have lately rocked FOTA who were able to manipulate the FIA in the run up to the current concorde agreement. Now looking as weak as ever. Ferrari, RBR (and HRT): Ferrari and RBR left to for reportadley being disheartened by the stalemate. However it is most likely they have their own plans, they must be well-thought as it is a big risk to leave (HRT wouldn't pay, and don't really do much in the way of F1 politics) The TV companies: Well Sky having earned a load more subscriptions certainly seem to be able to defy Teams and Sponsors interests, but it was a deal crafted by FOM. The Fans: The 'casual viewers' who apparently are the reason for DRS and the die-hard fans who couldn't bring themselves to boycott anything. Biggest problem is opposing interests. The Sponsors: A huge portion of the teams income, but very quiet recently. The Drivers (GPDA): Except the odd grumble over safety they have also been relatively quiet.
