F1 » Ecclestone rules out three-car F1 teams

Three car teams are too expensive and would not be good for the survivability of the sport, which needs small and medium sized independents. Proper distribution of the television and other royalties is the answer. Unfortunately, the will is lacking by the big teams. But who are the passionate ones? Not the manufacturers. Name one small team in the past decade that withdrew from the sport because they lost interest? None. All that left went kicking and screaming, and heavily in debt. But the manufacturers? Toyota came and went. BMW came and went, forcing Peter Sauber to once again work magic to save the team. Honda came and went. Twice. Once as an engine supplier and then as a manufacturer. Jaguar (Ford), Gone.Porsche, as an engine supplier. Gone. They come and spend massive amounts to win, driving up the costs of all competitors and when they do not win, they leave.

F1 » Fifth F1 win in a row for Hamilton in Austin

Hamilton's long run pace was better on Saturday, qualifying being the exception. The race was going to be decided by whether Hamilton could make a move in the DRS zone. He could, he did, and that was it for Rosberg. The gap to the others is depressing when you think of the advantage Mercedes will likely carry over to next year. How good is Ricciardo? Awesome.

F1 » Ecclestone rules out three-car F1 teams

beastinblack True, Ferrari is passionate and they have never left. But back in the 90's they threatened to leave, and even built an entire Indycar to demonstrate they were serious. The result? They are given an 18.5 million slice to stay even before they begin dividing the pot for the other top five. They have been one of the driving forces behind the great inequity of the sport.
