Geneva meeting to address costs in F1 was a 'fiasco'

The F1 Commission this week failed to act on the issue of the sport's struggling small teams. A report at Italy's specialist Autosprint described the Geneva meeting as a "fiasco", as 29 items were on the agenda "but only six were actually discussed".

It added: "The idea to give the customer teams a discount on the supply of their engines was rejected. Bernie Ecclestone was ready to make a contribution if the biggest teams also did, but instead the 'status quo' was maintained," said Autosprint. (GMM)

  • It's not hard for Bernie to make those magnanimous offers when he's already certain that at least two of the constructor teams (Mercedes, Ferrari) won't go along and would block better funding for smaller, private teams. Meanwhile, the clock is ticking, and the EU cartel-busting bloodhounds ARE rousing and stirring. Let's hope that the so-called Strategy Group can start getting its collective, corrective act together at the next meeting on December 15th.
