i dont even need to click to kno what it is!

i said a while back to myself that 09 will be the last season i watch, which hurts, ive been following avidly for years, ive just had it with engine plans, corruption, cheating, bias, ditching good tracks for money

this is a business and not a sort anymore

It is nothing to do with engine deals, it is to do with a deal they have had since 2002

What can you say about that?
Sports hasn't been true sports when business comes in to it.
It's true of all sports today.
Isn't it?

f1 is exceptionally bad for it, and it doesnt have to be, the btcc [before seat left] was great fun to watch

I was a big fan of Alonso and Renault back then but went off him when he spat the dummy when a young upstart was beating him in an equal car

i must admit he lost alot of his broader audience then,
also i wouldnt be able to cheer him on if he is in a ferrari,

renault will always be my team, such a shame the sport is heading down hill, scrapping canada, all these innovation bans, the FIA/bernie/max, ah what ya gonna do?

it used to be that a small team could get ahead of a big budget team with something innovative, recently renaults mass dampner = banned, [ok they werent tiny, but lack money of the biggest]

no room for lotus etc these days, just look at super aguri and the like

i still say just a set budget cap at say £100million a year and [relatively] free reign on developement
