Sutil will be deservedly on trouble if the articles are right

Sad to hear those words from Luca DM about the Pirellis and renewed threats of breakaway series thanks to the News Corp rumours

Breakaways won't ever work. The closest they got was the 2009 breakaway, but even then it wouldn't have worked because they had 8 teams and would have constantly bickered over the regulations.

Remember that di Montezemolo will only complain when Ferrari isn't winning, that's why I have a disdain of them. Okay, so you're the 3rd best team so work out how to resolve that; don't blame the regulations for your own teams inability to be the best. If Ferrari win the championship, they don't complain. If they don't, they do. Simple as. LdM said this after Singapore 2008, "Of course, when you race on a track that would work better as a circus rink or something along those lines, anything can happen, because the real show was put on by the safety car. This is humiliating for the F1 world". He somehow forgot that Massa put in one of the laps of his life in qualifying and they were 1-3 until they f*** up the pitstop, Massa made errors and Kimi crashed out. Its childish.

I think his objective is to put the FOTA in charge of the governance of F1 by any means necessary. The least expense route would be with CVC continuing to own F1 but making the FIA redundant and replacing them with the FOTA. But with the F1 Magazine having proclaimed the sport "the world's fourth largest economy" with a "gross national product" of $3.8 trillion USD, I think Murdoch and Slim and News Corp and the pother potential investors are very keen on the possibility of plucking such a prime plum for a fraction of its true worth.

IMO this is a great move to bring back a simple, old-style yet great European circuit to the calendar.

Seeing the A1 Ring back on the calendar would be great. It's an awesome circuit.

Olav Mol says the place sucks!

'The place is terrible, the old ring was better and hotels are nowhere near the circuit!'

He can kiss goodbye to his F1 seat. Theres been suggestions of someone else being involved as well, possibly Hamilton?

It was Hamilton, yes. But he had nothing to do with the fight. He just was there. Wrong time, wrong place story

The perfect excuse for Force India to kick him out of the team. Not the first time this happens in F1.

The last time a driver had to be replaced due to facing criminal charges, they were replaced by a fast, young, and ultimately very successful German. Hulkenberg is the reserve driver at Force India. Is this a good sign for him? :p

Nothing except an allegedly false testimony. Obstruction of justice is considered a crime in a lot of countries (though I don't know about chinese law).
