  3. The plans for the breakaway series is an empty threat. FOTA teams will be back next year.

    This is the biggest news in the motorsport world right now. Eight major F1 teams threatened to pull out of F1 and establish their own racing series if FIA does not withdraw its uncompromising regulations.

    *I separated this issue from the general 09 thread since this pertains to a much larger issue.

    So they don't like being told that they have a budget that might possibly allow new companies to compete? They'll whine, but they will get over it.

    I'm going with empty threat. frankly they know it would be the end of them if they split the series in half plus I just don't think they could afford it

    Looks like Max Mosley could be in for a spanking. So it's a no-lose situation for him.
