Thank you Mr. Walker. I seriously hope this puts the pressure on Mosley/Ecclestone. But I wonder if Walker can put his money were his mouth is: what's in the current contract Melbourne has with FOM?

Even if they have to pay the penalty it is probably significantly less than losses from hosting a F 1/2 race. And BE may find this penalty hard to enforce.

Iam toasting my first beer tonight to Mr. Walker!

After all thats happened to Max in the last year, He clings to power with the vice-like grip of a barnacle!
It shows he is there for himself and his megalomania.

How anyone can vote for this fiend in the upcoming elections(should he stand) is beyond comprehension.

Just glad someone outside of FOTA is saying this!

I am curious: did FOTA stop all preparations for the breakaway series after the last agreement with the FIA or did they continue (maybe a bit secretly) in case it all went bad again?? Anybody any ideas?

Well done Mr Walker, at least somebody apart from FOTA and the fans will speak out about Mr Moseley's arrogance and destruction of F1. Somebody must have the power to remove MM from his position before he destroys F1. It is plain to see that the majority are behind FOTA and MM and the FIA. There must be a lot more high profile people out there who are saying but behind closed doors. Maybe it time that the AA, RAC, Caravan Club removed their affiliations with the FIA until he stands down. Or maybe their members should stop their membership to apply pressure. It is disgusting how one individual whose arrogance can be allowed to rip a sport apart for the sake of his ego.

Wims, the operation he oversaw probably only ran with considerable loss due to the ridiculous fees that circuits have to pay Bernie in order to host the race. Maybe it would have still been a loss even without those fees, but I bet it would have been a considerably smaller loss.
