F1 » Hulkenberg expecting further changes in F1 pecking order

You don't see McLaren or Ferrari pulling out because they're not winning year-in-year-out. Red Bull would destroy a good deal of their credibility in the sporting world if they ran away, particularly if it's becuase they fell foul of a clearly writte rule. If Todt gives in, he too will destroy his credibility as president of the FIA - he'll be out at the next election, if not sooner on 'no confidence' grounds.

F1 » Renault F1 has ‘huge job list’ for 2015

Richard, the token system has nothing to do with car development - it's purely an engine manufacturer thing. The only reason Ferrari & Renault were holding back on their development tokens was in case they managed to convince Mercedes to allow in-season development. Of course, the Germans have said 'NEIN' which means they've (or at least Renault) have underspent on their tokens and don't have the time to competently spend them.

F1 » Kaltenborn critical of Mattiacci stance on F1 issues

@Gecko I disagree, unlike the 'new' teams, Sauber has a solid 20+ year track record. They're just going through a slim patch due to a critical lack of funds, like a lot of teams. I also question your targetting of Monisa, personally. Is this a 'because she's a woman' thing, because Vijay Mallya and Gerard Lopez are basically saying the same words. Marco Mattiacci's stance on the F1 funding debate is incredibly self-serving - which he is entitled to do, this is a sport - but to write down teams as 'non-competitive' when a) his team has an appearance fee greater than several smaller teams total budgets and b) his teams ****ty engine basically doomed Sauber anyway, it just makes him look like a total ass.
