Just saying...

The UK spends roughly 10Bil a year to be a member of the EU thats roughly 30M taxpayers money everyday. Of this spain gets roughly 1Bil of the UK tax paid EU shares every year alot of this is spent on things such as sponsorship and very little is spent on its actual purpose! It annoys me when people say spain are simply spending there tax payers money when infact they're not Spain gives roughly 9Bil every year to the EU yet receives 12Bil in shares! my rant is over crash feel free to bitch.

Currency in GBP as crash decides to not allow the pound symbol!

This is a motosports site. Go take your petty politics somewhere else, and if you are so pissed off with "your" money going to the EU, vote for UKIP or something instead of lecturing us here. Like if british personel and team aren't over represented in motorsports in general...

I know this is a bloomin motorsport website my point is that politics mentioned in that statement is very influential in motorsport and why spanish riders are a large % of the grid i love racing and i find it annoying that the politics in money is changing it there are great riders lost because spain throws money here there and everywhere... FYI i vote UKIP always have always will i'm also a serviceman it upsets me working my ass off to have a portion of my money go to waste each year politics over however i don't see how salom deserves the ride there's a few riders on the benches!!

They have the best national championships, they created the conditions, they are a sport loving country, and now they reap the rewards. That sounds liek the typical british envy. You are pissed with the passports? Welcome to the real world, you think it's only now? The difference now is that the UK is no longer relevant in motorcyle racing, but how many hungarian rally drivers you see in the WRC? And they sure rallye in that country a lot. Sucks for the british to lose proeminence now, doesn't it?

As for UKIP, yes, vote for them, good riddance.

@I remember i sense spite in your comments i sense either american, deluded or both... The UK will forever be relevant to motorsport! F1 a majority of the paddock is british & motogp there's still frame builders such as ftr building frames for teams such as ducati! Spain is a sport loving country but the investing is in sense monopolising it leaving other countries no chance to place there sportsmen & women in there. WRC has it's own struggles not just money...

I am not american, not even close, but it's funny that in the same comment you complain about Spain monopolizing a sport, and then rave about how the F1 paddock is monopolized by british personel and teams...
