Hey hey, Crash.net have woken up at last have they?
I think they will pull out and be damned. Take their engines as well. Then what will we be left with?

If that were the case then why all the prevarication? Have RBR signed up for their engines yet does anyone know? I cant keep track of it all today!
I still think they will hot foot it.

I cannot see a buyer popping up this late in the day.
There are no other Ross Brawns waiting in the wings to save the day. Who wants a rotten and corrupt team.

Honda, BMW and Toyota gone over the last 12 months. Bridgestone gone after next year.

Renault is GONE at the end of the year! Why would they continue to dump money down the drain in F1 when they are losing billions? What incentive will Ferrari have to stay? They are losing money also.

F1 is a complete mess. Thank god for IndyCar.

Was always under the impression that FIA decision not to fine Renault $100m and deduct points over crashgate like they did McLaren was based on the understanding they would be on the grid for 2010-the financial climate has not got any worse since the hearing so what is their problem in saying YES?,they've got a shed load of cash they didn't to ante up!!!

Today, a six-year agreement was reached between IZOD and the Indy Racing League for the IZOD brand to become the title sponsor (for $60-70M?) of the newly renamed IZOD IndyCar Series. New chassis' and engine's in a year.

F1 and IndyCar seem to be going in different directions. Anf F1 appears to be following the direction of A1GP (down the drain).

Actually I hear that Cosworth is a possible supplier to IRL in 2011. There is also a connection with Kalkhoven being cosworth and the fact he owns a team in IRL with Jimmy Vasser(KVRacing Technologies). As well as visiting the Virgin(manor) outfit 3 weeks ago. Wirth(manor) did supply winning chassis to IRL in 04 05. Might be a driver or chassis program between the two but maybe more.

How this companies are pulling out I don't know. Well I do know, they SHOULD be allowed a bigger slice of the Berni pie. He makes WAY to much for someone who doesn't have to finance anywhere near the sums these teams do. Who ever makes the decisions give the teams more of the profit for petes sake
