So Mercedes will still need bits and pieces to fill the Brawn hole besides dropping in Toto and Lowe into that hole dug up by themselves, Brawn was assuring all and sundry that he had all bits and pieces in place, most probably they will need a truck load of bits and pieces to fill that hole they dug up themselves.

Your probably right on the impact of losing Brawn but those two have huge ego if limited experience at this level. I just hope Brawn managed to do enough to give the two drivers something for the engineers and most importantly the engineers to work with...

Otherwise regulation change or not -F1 is most likely finished as a competitive formula that attracts the multiple spectator base it currently enjoys.

And if the tyres are not sorted - well suddenly (any) other formula or racing looks better

Richard, I think Dr Fanboy means "If Lulu doesn't get a winning car next year F1 will be finished because I wont be watching"

Don't worry fanboys if that comes to pass you wont be missed.

ty. if that is what he meant, then his post is even more hilarious!
the only thing that would have been more ridiculous, was if he said that if maxie does not win next year, f1 as a global interest sport would not survive.
