Bernie Ecclestone is said to be threatening a clampdown on F1 teams displaying sponsor signage in their garages.

For years teams have displayed logos in their garages without any outside interference. However, on Thursday they received a letter from Allsport, the organization that controls trackside advertising, which in effect pointed out that it also owns the garage advertising space.

Teams have no doubt that Ecclestone is behind the letter, and the suggestion is that it's part of a wider political game that is going on in relation to Pirelli and the deal it will have with teams.

@robo1, Bernie gets his tiny little "carny" fingers into everything doesent he?

Congrats Rob, You win! I thought for sure they would have it! Must have worked on their gearbox, and they are showing alot of downforce as compared to some of the other teams. Possible detonation as far as the motor goes is what that makes me think. Again thanks for taking the bet, do the victory dance. If I could I would by you a drink or two. Ed :) :)

It's a lot easier to declare an event as being sold out, when you take out a number of seats.
Time was, when the grandstands extended along the whole front straight all the way to the last corner.
Now, it's just one section and a bit.
Guess there aren't enough suckers to cough up the $500 bucks.
