F1 » Force India: Marussia F1 proposal 'lacked substance'

F1 never ceases to amaze me, for the good of the series it is obvious that Marussia or Manor should be encouraged to race. There is a seriously wrong structure for decisions in place, what we have now is a structure where other teams can drastically effect the series by their decisions. The teams should not be in a position to affect other teams, the FIA should set the rules and the teams should be invited to enter and compete. OK there is a little thing called Bernie as well........

F1 » Kate Walker: The rock and the hard place

Unfortunately Kate has hit the nail on the head. Greed is starting to take over from common sense, Greed on behalf of the big teams who squirt an obscene amount of money at what was a sport and refuse to take on simple fixes to reduce costs (like banning telemetry and reducing all the PC monkeys that are lined up at the back of the pits). Greed on behalf of the commercial rights holder who manipulates the prize monies and takes a far too large chunk of the money for himself. One thing that you may all not be aware of is that using Trust to avoid tax actually becomes a monster (I can vouch for that from experience). Sure you can dump £m's into it tax free but the costs of managing it along with the fact that when you borrow from it you have to declare this to the tax authorities and pay tax on what you borrow, very quickly it becomes a monster that you have to feed (that's ignoring any ex wives and daughters spending from it). It could be that this monster is now driving the costs
