prediction: Jean Todt will THANK Windsor & Anderson for sparing the season-long self-induced FIA headache of the new teams who did make the grid. result: public dressing-down and a 2011 entry.

Todt will make the proper call.. I know some posters do not care for him but I say he is doing a fine job. Hopefully, he gets us tires for next year soon. Coupled with a new team selection process that will gives us the BEST options.

rob - the new team selection was all about money rather than the sport. Until Ecclestone is not involved in the selection process, there will always be duff teams getting in, as long as they have deep pockets.

Andrew, I don't think it was about money. Bernie's buddy Max wanted two tiers and convinced Bernie that his grid would be full and safe. With new teams that owed a return to Max and Bernie. This was more about the FOTA war than Bernie making a buck. My opinion.

If we ever really get the full story on why USEff1 went tits-up it will probably be from this source. I don't think we will ever hear an unbiased accounting from Windy or Ken. The full story should be made public as lessons learned for new teams in the future.

99% of the sane people in Motorsport and most of the fans realised long ago that USF1 had as much chance of making the F1 grid as David Beckham and Gordon Brown with Anne Robinson and Cheryl Cole as there designer and car builders :rolleyes:
So how come the froggy toad has only just got on the case?
Cr1p start for the season!
