I'd say Bernard would've squeezed there balls to a point where they would've had to have. Too much has been invested into Indianapolis to break F1 in America. A problem like this should not have made them piss it all away (like they have).

Whilst it is Michilens fault for making garbage tires, it is the FIA's rules which prevented changes being made.

I've also never understood why 10/10 votes are needed to change something like this (or anything for that matter). Surely 9/10 or 8/10 should be enough to change something like this.

There is no reason why Ferrari should be aloud to ride rough shot over the sport.

I wholeheartedly agree with that...it really annoys me. The same thing happened when the other nine teams wanted to minimise testing as a way of cost cutting but Ferrari didn't sign. Michael Schumacher was asked about the win and he said that "obviously it is not an ideal way to win my first race of the season but one of 84 is not a disaster."
Who here likes this guy?
The US GP was a day when the sport should have overridden politics but that didn't happen. It just goes to show what a mess the sport has become. Ferrari and the FIA need to wake up to themselves. Personally, while I was against a break off league a while ago, if the every team but Ferrari broke off the world would be a happier place.
The solutuions -
1. Sack Max Mosley. Name one good thing he has done lately. He screwed the sport beyond recognition with shit rules that no one liked.
2. Change the voting system so that only 75% is needed to pass something not 100%.
3. MAKE THE SPORT FAIR instead of the sport being all-Ferrari. E.g. - The Fia needs to make sure that Ferrari is happy. That is their top priority. That Ferrari is happy. Not to make sure the sport is being watched by anyone, or how the sport is liked at the moment, as long as Ferrari are happy, they are at peace with the world.

Now their might be those who disagree with me, but that is my opinion. It could save the sport.

Enough said.

Big shame for the FIA...

But I'm not angry: A PORTUGUESE DRIVER WENT TO THE PODIUM FOR THE FIRST TIME

The FIA continues to kill itself...the comments about Patrick will just seal the deal that F1 will never work in the U.S. again. To not only make comments in the press, but then to call her and repeat the comments...truly tasteless.

As for the "investment" F1 has made in the U.S....let's review this. Watkins Glen, NY used to host the F1 GP. FIA wanted so much money from the village, that they had to give it up. Same story for Las Vegas, Detroit and the rest of the US cities (outside of Indy). FIA has killed its own chances in the US...and now this?

I really hope that all of the fans get their tickets and travel money refunded in the lawsuits.

FIA has announced that they have found the seven teams who did not race guilty of 2 offences and will be punished in September. Michelin tires has announced an offer to purchase 20,000 tickets and distribute them to people who were at this years match race between the Ferraris.

Apparently the bill is set to reach $75000000 dollars...that's gotta hurt...but it's not the teams' fault, it's Michelin's.

Jenson Button is starting on the front row of the British G.P. and no one cares? A win, on home turf, after this week would be huge. Good luck Jenson.

Ah yes, finally more F1 in this forum.

Montoya won and I'm happy for him! But I would have felt better if Alonso had won. But who cares, Fernando is still leading the championship!

I expected Jenson to do better at the British Grand Prix. After all he was on the front row...

Kimi blows up almost handing the title to Alonso. Still, it's better than MS winning every week. Waiting for Monza and Spa, some real tracks.

Things are getting pretty boring with Alonso winning all the fucking time. Everyone complained about MS dominating in the past. But it's just as bad this year with this Spanish retard in his shit French car. Fuck F1 this year...it blows

Kimi won last sunday so that's not true anymore. There's still a chance that Kimi might win the title. If his car doesn't break down all of the time. Or else we'll just see a new Spanish champion this year....and Michael Schumacher will retire out of shame. Michael was on pole position but he lost anyway. Sooooo unlike him

I hope the drivers championship goes on to the last race just to keep the interest up. Has anyone heard anything about the new track in Turkey? Probably another flat, featureless, soulless piece of real estate with grandstands and a paddock.

Monza!

Alonso is going to be world champion this year! I'm sure of it.

The race in Italy yesterday was won by Montoya while Kimi lost another race. I didn't expect to see that Montoya and Kimi would have the same problem with their tires.

Michael Schumacher sucked this weekend. I thought he'd do better than he did. My boss thinks Ferrari is doing badly on purpose to make the sport more interesting but I don't agree with him.

I think it's stupid to think something like that. A team never wants to do badly in Formula 1.
