I'm not sure how good a series that consists only of 2 Williams cars and 2 Force India cars will be. I have a feeling that either they'll join the other FOTA teams or FIA will back down - there's too much TV and sponsorship money at stake for the Max and Bernie show to fail...
If for no other reason than we might get a British race at Silverstone!
This is from the FOTA statement:
"This series will have transparent governance, one set of regulations, encourage more entrants and listen to the wishes of the fans, including offering lower prices for spectators worldwide, partners and other important stakeholders,"
The present situation seems to have ,moved away from it's roots, and Ecclestone is only interested in ££££.
I'm split on this. I'm not a fan of Bernie but he does seem to have done a good job of promoting F1 over the years. But on the other hand it's that level of promotion (and teh £££ that it generates)that has resulted in this situation occurring.
I don't think there's space for another top level race series and I can't see how they will get the big venues to hold the events. I can't imagine, say Monaco, shutting the city down twice a year!!
On the bright side, it may give Silverstone a chance to continue running!
