Doesn't make a diff to me. F1 is one big joke.........

Im already a MotoGp guy now, nothing in F1 can amaze me.

Didn't i tell you guys, F1 is all about money, these guys are willing to do anything for money, win races or lose them.

Shame on them!!!

Regards...

According to me Luca is right. The other teams are barely making any money which they really require after many laws have been changing every year. The changes lead to Testing the Equipment which in the end lead to alot of money even if they change the shape of the fin by a mere millimetere.

It wouldn't make too much of a difference..... And i agree with GTO that they've been saying this for a while now. Wht's the point of repeating the same statement again and again? And its ironic that one of the richest teams of F1 is making such an issue of not getting enough money than one of the smaller teams.

Exactly!
If they go at the end of 2007, it'll probably be the time Michael Schumacher will be ready to hang his boots up. If they go now, racing for the top spot will suddenly become interesting.
