I doubt it would be good for the sport if there were a break away series. On the other hand, I hate seeing KERS and other green initiatives introduced for the sake of reducing cost or spicing up the interest.

A series with none of MrM's ridiculous ideas like KERS, budget caps or pointless environmental guf would still be a series worth watching.

It'll never happen but it would be good if it did.

Personally i just wish they would put up or shut up ,
If you are going to form a breakaway series fine , Do it , Just stop threatening every now and then . .

And Ferrari could survive under a different name ... FIAT perhaps.

"races begin at 2 o'clock when most people are lying on the beach."

Reality and Montezemolo aren't close companions are they. Monty's off his rocker.

Luca wants to avoid any cost restriction because his team has the most money and therefore a big advantage.

It's the same lack of interest in the sport and desire to win, however unfairly, that cost Massa his win in Hockenheim.

Luca should go off and try to run his rival series. He'd soon be back with his tail between his legs.
