Re: Would you support Ferrari or let them go?

F1 and Ferrari go hand-in-hand together.

Neither Sport nor Manufacturer will be better off without each other.

It will be resolved. I cannot see either side wanting the other to go. I think they'll both compromise and get it done.

I don't think he should do it, But I think he will do it. I think the reason why he would over Bahrain, Baku etc is because it's a ' black ' issue ( not to sound racist but I think that's where his train of thought will be ) He holds a lot of star power in America, Probably more than any with the ex...

So Brundle and Crofty are discussing engine regs... What if you can only change engines/engine parts/gearboxes when they fail? Penalty free.
