Which means FOTA will have effectively forced through exactly what it was trying to stop - a 2 tier championship with 1 lot of teams competing under 1 set of rules and the rest under anotherGordonMurray said:Whatever happens it looks likely that six teams who entered under one set of regulations (the new five plus Williams) will end up having to race under a different set. Which is another great achievement by all parties involved.
I'm sure it suits Max and Bernie very well that any new teams would dilute the power of the manufacturers within the sport, and lessen the prospects of a future breakaway series.bogaTYR said:another point: what does this mean if the new teams would arrive? i start to have the thought they might see FOTA as their natural enemy after all this misery and that would mean that just by allowing new teams, FIA breaks down FOTA. well, partly at least.
Of all the people for FOTA to listen to, why Max Mosley? Its like Hitler taking advice from Churchill on his battle plans. (Although Churchill probably couldn't have thought of a battle plan worse than Hitler's!) I just don't get it.Brogan said:Well with the news that Force India secretly submitted a separate application in tandem with the joint one, it looks like FOTA is already breaking up.
Once again Max and Bernie will get their own way simply because the teams are unable to stand firm as a united body.
Come next Friday, 7 of the remaining FOTA teams may get a very nasty shock when they find their joint application is invalid, even though it was Max who apparently told them to submit a joint, conditional entry.
Once again, Max Mosley looks to have outsmarted the teams.
