Where are the "indie" lovers now?

FOTA have demonstrated time and time again, THEY are the ones who should run this sport!

Poor Form on Williams(toyota engined) Force India(Mercedes powered) Torro Rosso(Ferrari) And shockingly Brawn(Mercedes) as i have heard no mention of them.
Pull the plug on those teams for Valencia as recompense
See how far the indies go without an engine! :)

Post script
I admit some FOTA teams abstained but the manufacturere FOTA did not.

I really hate Alonso and Renault, but this was the right thing to do, the ban was stupid and I am so very happy to hear the rival Teams chipped in a good word to help, very grown up, great for F1 in the bigger picture.

Jeez, I am starting to warm to Fernando again, DOCTOR HELP !

What a joke! Sends out a really bad message. The FIA has to grow a pair at some point and actually stand by their decissions. The ban was the right thing to do but yet again, the FIA have proven themselves to be a bunch of wimps (yet again).

It's all about brownie points isn't it, extra revenue for the independant teams will be available with a poor manufacturer (this season) not in the points, also I would argue that although the FIA were wrong initially with their knee-jerk reaction the teams that have let Renault off the hook are guilty of bringing the sport into disprepute by challenging the FIA's opinion... wrong though it is!
