cut costs to your hearts content. Don''t reduce the cars track time anymore as all the stupid Parc Farme rules have done and spoilt the enjoyment for the real fans who are at the track all weekend unlike Bernies favourites who fly in 10 minutes before the start.....

I suppose MM has to move to cut costs. In the current economic climate the teams can't afford to take part in F1 and continue to fund BE's hefty cut. Since no force on earth would come between BE and his F1 income, the costs to take part in F1 have to go down.

hopefully outlawing pneumatic valves and lowering down the maximum revs will be high on the list. pneumatic valves is too expensive to be developed by many from scratch and after 20 years there still no application on the road, so what's the point of having one?

pneumatic valves is the main reason why the engine cost skyrocketed...

I've been a motorsports fan for some 55 years. Growing up in the U.S., I didn't discover F1 until the mid sixties. I was immediately smitten. The best of the best. Nothing spared. No challenge too great. That included finding the money to compete at the highest level, which I still consider part of the competition in F1. It would be a sad day, for me anyway, to see F1 denigrate to something less for the dubious contention of "cost cutting". I've witnessed the open wheel series (IRL) in the U.S. become a shell of what once was arguably a close second (CART) to F1. All under the guise of cost cutting.
