What an egoistical maniac .. It was never about anything he preached..
It was only about him having total control.. Cart only had to bow their heads
To f1.. Now indycars get beat by formula Nippon cars..

Now He seeks to rebuild the same structure he sought to destroy..
Only because it is the only way back to power..

Total hypocrite .. And the loss of hundreds of million,
Hasn't even dampened his lust for control..

And f1 guys think they have it bad with Bernie..
Lets just hope Tony can never afford to buy f1

I agree.This guy is the cancer which has more or less killed open wheel racing in the US. Lets face it, Indycar will never recover to its former glory (even as CART)and if this guy has anything to do with it,I fear it will be all dead & buried within 3 years. I wouldnt trust him running a county fair!

Oh and another thing. I would like to bring up the demise of Lola. If it weren't for the likes of a single chassis series, (which never works outside feeder series), this great manufacturer wouldn't be gone now.Indycar needs multiple manufacturers both in chassis,engines & tires to succeed along with a decent TV package. That's what made the original Indycar/CART so entertaining and successful. He has a lot to answer for in causing the split in the first place (along with AJ Foyt).
