F1 » F1: Vettel admits skipping qualifying ‘very likely’


107SS2009: The US F1 race goers (paying attendance) deserves better than that, more so with the grid being down to 18 cars, the sporting rules should not allow such things/practices as it is not only not fair on F1 followers but neither in the spirit of the sporting rules.
Sporting rules? Since when has F1 been a sport? I'd have to have dementia to remember that far back.

F1 » F1: Kate Walker: The peril of being right


Kate's right - there needs to be a mechanism whereby the governing body (FIM) can impose rules for the good of the sport. The notion that consensus can be achieved is false. Whenever that has been tried the end result is just the lowest common denominator. The reality is the 'haves' (Mercedes, Ferrari, Red Bull, McLaren) don't want a spending cap. Mercedes in particular has just spent its way to success. A cap and a more level playing field would simply emphasise that in truth some of these teams are not anything like as good as they and their egos think they are. So in the absence of any firm management, the debacle will continue. Meanwhile the fans and sponsors are walking whilst Bernie continues to focus on selling events to rich tyrants as a status symbol. Maybe the best thing is for F1 to implode. Then start again with a new management and regulatory framework.
