F1 » Stewart defends Mosley over F1 2010 disarray

Given their fractious past relationship, three-time world champion Sir Jackie Stewart is perhaps an unlikely candidate to defend Max Mosley, but the Scot argues that the former FIA President is not entirely to blame for what has been described as the 'Mickey Mouse' nature of F1 2010

The Toyota recall is motivated by the American motor industry, it used to be called anti-market protectionism. Montezemolo is simply lying, the big car teams left because of financial problems and because they were being run by tax bail outs.
Mr Stewart is to be admired for changing his tune and supporting Max but he should be careful throwing stones from his RBOS glass house. Kers was and is open to outside investment and not limited to team budgets. FOTA not using it has put back hybrid and electric car development by at least five years.
Ferrari of course are painting their cars green, which says it all.

autogyro, without going too technical, it is wrong to say that hybrids and electric cars have been put back 5 years. there are more hybrids and electrics in the offing, than ever before. why, even ferrari and merc are in on the act! BUT hybrids are less efficient than pure petrol or diesel, in their latest guise. batteries are expensive and toxic, so carbon footprint is far greater than p or d cars. further, what happens when you are on the m1 and you run out of power. you cannot top up in 5 mins.! electric will remain a novelty for a long, long time yet. just a sop to the "greens" at the moment.
