F1 » Red Bull issues quit threat over regulations

Skooter: They won't quit. Although, RBR seemed more than content when they were winning four years on the trot, now it just seems like toys out of pram because they are being beaten. Although I do agree the rules and regulations are killing the sport. In other words the FIA, just like they did with the WRC only bigger. I've long said one of the biggest problems is the lack of pre and in season testing. One team will always be the breakaway team, but with the lack of testing it takes half the season to catch up, by which time the season is almost done from a points position. Long gone are the days of teams being able to thow money at their cars to play catch up - but they did it, and we had a championship to watch. And with such new technology, to have only three pre season tests is nonsense.
Would Mercedes be allowed to test also.

F1 » Red Bull issues quit threat over regulations

LoveF1: @PinkLadyRacer, Taz's point is simple. If the fans lose interest and walk away from the sport, that is no good for the sport. The internal argument and bickering about who likes the rules and who was winning when...will not count! Bernie and the FIA will panic and change the rules all over again. If Red Bull pull out, we will lose 4 cars on the grid, not 2, never mind all the staff and suppliers that will lose their contracts. It is not so straightforward that "another team will step into their place" because there are not many billionaires or manufacturers queuing up to throw their hard-earned money into what is becoming a boring sport! That is just a part of the bigger picture Taz is talking about. Need I go on???
And if Mercedes decides to leave what then.
