I am not in the least bit surprised to find out that Ferrari are the only ones who are holding things up. The nine other teams — including the other Bridgestone runners — have agreed to race if a chicane is put in.
Ferrari’s policy has been to put lives at risk today for the sake of petty politics. It is pathetic. Ferrari have been responsible for all of the biggest PR disasters in Formula 1 in recent years, and this is by far the worst yet. Particularly in America — who can forget the US Grand Prix of 2002 when Michael Schumacher deliberately slowed down on the very last corner to “manufacture a dead heat”. It is not racing. It is typical Ferrari bullshit.
We all know that rules are rules. But today it looks like there is not going to be a Formula 1 race. In America of all places. This will probably be the death of F1 in America, the final nail in the coffin. Even if you were to make it a non-championship race. Just have a race. Anything else will be a highly embarassing farce, and yet again it’s all Ferrari’s fault.
This is the final straw. Ferrari can fuck right off. They are not welcome in Formula 1 any more.
Update: Jordan are a bunch of opportunists aswell.
