What right does he have to rubbish a proposal that he hasn't probably even seen. Each proposal should be given the same chance to succeed. It is not as if the other two are covered in previous glory so why single out Haas?

weavy.. how do you know that Bernie has not even seen the proposal? in fact, about six months ago, he did suggest that there was an American team talking to him. it may not have been haas but more than likely it was. all recent suggestions of an American entry to f1 have turned out to pie-in-the-sky, so he is right to be sceptical.

the latest America rumour is that Pollock is buying into lotus! oh no, not again!

Richard, Maybe someone at Lotus doesn't think things are bad enough, Pollock would soon cure that!

He's apparently Charles Pic's new manager so we'll probably never hear of him again, although we hardly heard of him last year!

Typical Bernie, playing politics as usual. He clearly does'nt want Haas to be sucessful because he wants his choice to get the vote. One week he's saying I only want ten teams the next week it's all about customer teams. At the end of the day he will have what he has because there are several teams on the brink as it stands and unless there is an effective cost cap no new teams will want to be involved. When is someone going to wake up to the realities, the top four teams spending £150M/£250M does'nt make for exciting racing if the rest have only a fraction of that sort of money.
