First Honda quit, then BMW anounced that they were going. This week we learned that Toyota had had enough and now perhaps Renault will follow. click here Will there be enough competitors to fill the grid next season???

The simple answer is Yes, there will be enough teams, as there are already 3 new teams, with a fourth, Sauber, ready to take Toyota's place.

Bridgestone are pulling out at the end of 2010 season, plenty of time for Goodyear or Pirelli to sort out a contract...

When they decided on Bridgestone Michelin were also wanting to supply

F1 has been on the way out for years. It has become so boring that I can't even remember half of the drivers. Watch the next GP on TV, after the start, the spectators lounge around on the grass banks having a few drinks instead of watching the 'race', hell, even cricket is in danger of becoming more watchable. By the way, who's the annoying interviewer (forgotten his name) that pukes everyone just before the start of the race, the guy who thinks it's cool to call David Coulthard DC? Get rid of him!!

Hope it all keeps going because Motorsport, F1 employs a lot of people in the UK, and that brings in a lot of money.


MAJ Martin Brundle is the name you are looking for, ex F1 driver and was DC`s manager when he was racing.

If Mosley is looking smug it is only because he managed to finish off his enemies before he went - although I think Briatore gave him a little help in his own case.


Noldi I don't think he is talking about Brundle but that Jake something or other.

Does anybody else wish they would get rid of the commentator who shares with Martin Brundle? I have found him to be fatuous and often either he left me confused or bored with his constant repetitions when we can already see for ourselves.

Come back Murray!

Not quite yet.

There's still a few thousand pounds of profit to be made from exploiting the drivers and fans.

The money men will squeeze it dry before they allow it to go to the wall.

"who's the annoying interviewer (forgotten his name) that pukes everyone just before the start of the race, the guy who thinks it's cool to call David Coulthard DC?"

Jake Humphries presents the show Brundle is the one doing the grid walk about.

"Does anybody else wish they would get rid of the commentator who shares with Martin Brundle? I have found him to be fatuous and often either he left me confused or bored with his constant repetitions when we can already see for ourselves."

But he is still miles better than James Allen who we had with ITV.
