F1 » Button thanks fans for support over F1 future

Red Bull will all of a sudden be spending around $6m next year on drivers, I do not believe that this action on their part was intended to do a favour to the big teams by gutting the drivers market salary demand but rather because of their uncertainty of the improvements of their PU next year and so their chances for the championship. On the other hand the Alonso/Mercedes talks will be used as a leverage by Mercedes in negotiating a new contract with Lulu. And that was exactly why Mercedes had put talks with Lulu on hold.

F1 » Button thanks fans for support over F1 future

“The consequences of a double ended sword” While Buttons seat at mclaren is still in doubt if he retains his seat his pay check will be severally dented. Despite FERRARI not yet confirming the signing of Vettel or the departure of Alonso, by signing Kvyat RBR did the big teams a very big favour by gutting the driver’s market salary demands instantly, Alonso had no more a real bargaining position and that also means that Lulu’s ideas of mega-bucks from Mercedes also took a big dent, if there is a cheap Alonso on the market Lulu has to become cheap as well, Button too, while Vettel might and looks like he has escaped this trap and will end up the highest paid driver in F1 for the next few years, he will be working the bonuses, The days of mega retainers seems are gone.

F1 » Ecclestone in talks over Las Vegas F1 race

To be honest and it doesn’t mean am right my first reaction/line of thinking when Mr F1 says “there is a chance of a race” here or there means chances are he is close to a deal somewhere else. Vagas with 39m visitors, 150k hotel rooms with an occupancy rate of 84%, a gaming revenue running at 9.6bl does not need F1 and will not pay for it, the city was talked into paying for a downtown champ car race in 2007, it was not returned.
