This isn't a case of "I told you so" about a sport that I love.

Ferrari have it right:
http://www.autosport.com/news/report.php/id/80013

...a cryptic comparison between F1's situation and an Agatha Christie mystery novel, and urged the sport to take action against those responsible for the pull-outs.

"It seems like a parody of Agatha Christie's 'Ten Little Indians', published in England for the first time in the year 1939, but reality is much more serious.

"In Christie's detective novel the guilty person is only discovered when everybody else is dead, one after the other. Do we want to wait until this happens or should we write Formula 1's book with a different closing chapter?"

Ferrari's statement comes on a day when Renault - one of only three manufacturers left in F1 alongside Ferrari and Mercedes - is also evaluating its F1 future. The company is discussing its plans at an extraordinary meeting.




Meanwhile, Renault are also rumoured to be holding top-level meetings...!

And all of the while, Toad is too busy with trying to resurrect the French GP to bother with the real crisis.

Toad as FIA President...? Now THAT'S a case of "I told you so"... {bangs fucking head}

Man beats wife over long period of time. His justification is that she is not really committed to him.

After 18 years of suffering his beatings, she finally leaves him.

Man then says, "I told you so."

im glad they have left, and i hope renault do as well. F1 as we know needs to die, and from the ashes a new type of F1 to be created, free of the leech BE, and the politics of the FIA.

whoe ver made the ferrari satement is talking out of their arse.

Manufacturers participate in f1 thanks to their marketing budget. If the opportunity dries up then they move on. Simple. The politics in f1 is there because everyone is trying to best position themselves for that bigger slice of the revenue pie.
kit car teams do it for survival, mnaufacturers (like Ferrari) do it for position.

Choice words coming from Ferrari, Clearly doing some damage limitation.

Next is likely Renault. Although that one seems to have clouded up over the last few months. Just a tactic i suppose to keep investor confidence till the end of the season. With new car sales still down in europe, renault won;t be spending close as much as what they have over the last few years and hey will certainly get a better return as a engine supplier.

f1 has been dead for a long time. its just being kicked in the grave right now. I doubt it will exist by 2012

Raptor, what happened to your prediction that Luca is gunning for Mosley's position and the abuse you directed at me for pointing out to you that Todt is the heir apparent?

Told you so...

I like this one, it reminds me of another one - even a dead watch is right twice a day. Laughing

RDD, I have to admit that Todt running for FIA president was a surprise. All indications was that he was happy to be away from F1. So good prediction there. My source merely mentioned that someone from ferrari was in the pipeline for the job and I did not consider Todt to be with Ferrari anylonger.


However Toyota's leaving was not guesswork. Renault seems to be faltering on what they want to do in F1. Current mumbling are that they will leave f1 this year and supply engines to Red Bull for 2010 and wider in 2011. Talk is that Prodrive will take up the vacancy if they leave. Can;t see how that will be possible unless Prodrive buys the Renault chassis and uses the Renault customer engine. we will see what will happen, information is far more sketchy now so teams are closing up the leaks. Toyota was easy because there are so many annoyed personnel that do not agree with Howlett's management style nor the direction he was taking Toyota. Many people willing to talk
Renault is not so easy to get information anymore.

Most of the rumblings is about McLaren and whether they will actually have Mercedes engines next year.

I wish I had predictive powers but in this case I simply stated what has been common knowledge even while Todt was still at Ferrari - that he was being groomed for Mosley's successor. That's why your vicious attack on me was totally unwarranted.

So far McLaren is keeping the Mercedes engines but for how long? No one seems to know for sure.

"....a deal was struck with Mercedes-Benz to confirm the German car maker will supply engines until the end of 2015 at the earliest - with options available to keep the partnership going beyond then.

McLaren will also continue to run in the silver and red colours that have been a hallmark of its tie-up with both Mercedes-Benz and title sponsor Vodafone."

NIce to see that young master Kobayashi has landed the Sauber drive.

So that leaves Kubica in a bit of a quandry if he decides Renault is not for him.
Heidfeld is expected to be annouced alongside Kobayashi in the next few days.
Heidfeld in next in line for the Mercedes seat if Schumacher turns it down.
