You would be correct :-) I was kind of hot headed and only scanned the last page of the thread before posting. Not sure how I missed post 188 though :-)

Did they show the pre race on TSN2?
No, it's not part of the coverage this year on TSN or TSN2.

Behind its smoked glass windows, the two Englishmen of pensionable age who control formula one were discussing the future of a sport thrown into chaos on Thursday night by the announcement that eight of the top teams will be breaking away to mount their own series in 2010.

The rebel teams – including Hamilton's McLaren and Button's Brawn, as well as Ferrari, BMW, Renault and Toyota – used their statement to declare open war on the two men cloistered together yesterday in the caravan: Max Mosley, the 69-year-old president of the Federation Internationale de l'Automobile (FIA), and Bernie Ecclestone, the 78-year-old chief executive of the company that mounts the 17-race series.

This is just what we need, two years after US open wheel racing was finally unified. I'd hate to see European open wheel racing separated into two series, at least all of the top teams are part of the new group.

More on the story from TSN.

Well, Mosley and Ecc. have been moving in directions the teams are not happy with. Constantly changing rules costs the teams money. Moving races out of traditional markets is pissing of the team sponsors. Who will attend and watch TWO races in the UAE versus Italy, Germany or Canada? No one!

Indy, English football, and now F1.

Oh yea I agree that the guys at the top of F1 are ruining the sport, but I'd just hate to see a split because it ruined open wheel racing in the US for about 10 years.

Not much of a race today, but I did like the end result.

Anybody else find it ridiculous that there is more coverage of a lapped car than some of the leaders? Where is the guy from last year telling us how Hamilton is the best driver?

Well there was hardly any drama at the front of the field, Vettel ran away from everyone, so might as well show some of the mid-pack battles.

And even the best driver in the world can't win in a car that won't turn.

arminia,

If you are referring to former ITV commentator James Allen, he's running a pretty good blog: http://allenonf1.wordpress.com/

I don't think a split would be anything like what happened in the US as the FIA's F1 would collapse right away with all the top teams and recognisable drivers in a new FOTA series.

Not if some of the teams are legally obligated to stay in F1.

There will be ways around that. Imagine Ferrari running a black car that does not pass the inspection, at every race in F1 2010. lol

BE is not going any where.

It would not have shocked me to see the break away series hire him as the promotor.

This is just a lull in the war. Battle won by FOTA and BE this time. Max lost and has to go into exile.
