For as long as Bernie is around, its a 'sport' of those who have and those who dont have. Bernie could run the minnows out of his loose change if he wished.

Ecclestone will kill F1 off eventually by not helping the teams mentioned they have to accept second class drivers with money but low on talent

Amazing how these people complain about how much money BE charges event promoters and then complain about the small teams budget. The more BE gets for each race the more goes to the teams. It is not for BE to manage the teams, if they cannot find funding that is not BE's problem. F1 is expensive and always has been, once upon a time tobacco money was the saviour, today we dont have (apart from SMF) any tobacco money. The funding is more diverse, so are the nationalaities of the drivers - What is the problem with a driver paying for his seat, senna, prost, schumi all paid their way into the sport.
