FreddyF You have got your facts wrong. The change from V10 to V8 was a proposal (in 2004) from the manufacturer teams to save costs. KERS was a proposal from the FIA (in 2005) which was agreed to by the manufacturer teams who themselves evolved the detailed rules.
No, the reason three manufacturer teams pulled out was the need to save costs in their main businesses.
We were fortunate not to lose Mercedes and Renault for the same reason. Both have imposed massive cost cuts on their teams and been able to save large sums with the engine freeze - another suggestion willingly adopted by the manufacturers. So they are still in - just.
