I think it's going to get worse. Supposedly Ferrari is taking a radical design direction with their engine. Different than everyone else. Spells trouble to me.

We don't even see Binotto now,oversees nearly everything out of sight just the top bods from a dark place in Maranello telling him what they wish, hope it's not back to Fiat electrics with the snowflake budget cap

That's my whole point. I think the money from RB (the sponsor) is more leading.
So you are saying out of one side of your mouth that MKSixer cant assume Mosley would have continued his previous course of action and acted in a similar manner if still present today. Then on the other side of your mouth you are saying that "YOU THINK" a for profit company doesnt care about making money?

Did I get that right?

No, you got it right that I haven't heard Marko or Horner about it.
Haven't read in a single article them saying needing the WCC prize money.....

What I have read is that they're working really really hard and doing everything to get Max the WDC.....
Yet the FIA doesn't give any prize money for that... funny eh?

From this I conclude that they'd rather have Max winning the WDC. Apparently more important than that last bit of FIA prize money for winning WCC instead of 2nd or so.

And I'm not saying they don't care about money. But money can come from lots of other sources than the FIA prize money columns.

Agreed!

Apart from being a very challenging big balls only track (130R turn ) including every kids' favourite part: the 'figure 8' layout...

...Suzuka brings to mind:
- the greatest ever F1 feud (Prost vs. Senna)
- Hakkinen, Hill winning the championship
- Kimi's best race ever (2005)
and sadly Jules Bianchi's crash. RIP.

It is also considered a Honda home track, so bad news for RB.

COTA has already offered a double header. Thinking Indy reached out also.

John Hugenholtz designed it as test track for Honda with that legendary figure of 8. So Honda stuffed again not to race there at the best track for them.

Could be. The Netherlands has a very long and influential history in crop breeding. Anyway, they're orange because of their high content of β Carotene, which is very healty.

Oranges are also pretty orange. And healty. Is there a pattern here?

I will be refreshing F1 news every 10-15 minutes per day to be on the lookout for Indy news. The moment I see it I'm booking a hotel for the weekend and paying whatever the hell it costs!

Japan/Suzuka, what a joke.
