F1 » Ferrari criticises Mosley, doubts F1 newcomers


Ferrari has accused Max Mosley of having all-but forced Toyota out of F1 by way of his 'war' against the sport's car manufacturers - and suggested the 2010 newcomers may be rather more style than substance

Bit melodramatic comparing it to a murder mystery. I can't see how all the blame can go to Mosley. Surely it can only be most of the blame. Sure the guy has had a bit of a downer towards manufacturer teams but there is a recession on at the moment and car sales are down. Mabye if the teams running costs were lower then there wouldn't be such problems. The blame in my opinion goes in this order - Mosley (80%), Teams greed (15%), Recession(5%).

I doubt Mosley leaving the FIA will sort this out as the rot goes very deep.

I do not know what this means. Surely now they have their puppet master at the helm, things should start settling down, Teams did not want a cap, but now they are quitting because it is too costly? What do they want? Why are Ferrari moaning? They are financed up the wazzoo, what matter if inferior teams join, they have a better chance of winning? The sport is being corrupted by inferior teamms? these people are just never happy?
Sheesh!

@Fred1
Your not wrong mate.
Their car is a piece of overworked, overdesigned, garbage truck that cannot be driven easily. They have lost most, if not all of their key personnel, and next year they will have to bitch-slap their drivers to behave themselves.
Thank god I am not a Tifosi!

I'm sceptical of Todt yes and i have been a vociferous critic of his too. But we should wait and see what happens before we criticise him.
Also if You READ the thread story you would see the REAL reason car makers are leaving.

BRITFAN - Ferrari have been quite vocal in their opinion of Todt being elected and have said that they will not accept any favours. After Mosleys sleave ridden reign of terror the FIA will be open to so much scrutiny that any shenanigans like Mosleys will cause massive problems for the FIA. If anything, Todt will have to walk on eggshells thanks to Mosley.

I love these mental Ferrari press releases/rants, they're hysterical! Andrew, just who do you think is going to be keeping an eye on what the FIA are doing to F1 next season? The WMSC? They don't give a damn.

I have read the article, TWICE, and I still do not understand it. Jean Todt got in by being a Ferrari Lackey and having Schuey cover his backside. What is he doing to stop all this happening? What are the FIA going to do? Naff all by the looks of things. I still say that there is more going on here than we are being told, Todt is wheeling and dealing like no tomorrow, behind closed doors, or, if not, then the politicking is going on to undermine him, and I cannot see someone of his standing putting up with it. He is hip deep with Ferrari. There is more to it. Just wait and see!

Cardinal - the media as usual will blow things out of proportion and F1 will be plunged into more sleeze.

BRITFAN - That is just pure speculation. The fact that Ferrari have said that they won't accept any favours is pure FACT. What you have to remember is that Vatanen went chasing Mosley for backing and was shown the door. How do youy know that Todt is "wheeling and dealing"? Do you know him? Again more speculation.

As Johnson said, that only sensible thing to do is to wait and see what happens rather than condem before anything happens.
