Today is a sad day...

So many people are talking about it that it's likely true...I don't see a bright future for any form of motorsports. Toyota will probably follow Honda and so will other manufacturers. F1 will end up as a spec series running only Ferrari cars. LOL

BTW...I need to copyright my thread title. I bet some journalist will copy it.

If true, it is sad indeed. But, it's the economically responsible thing to do right now. F1's "bang for the buck" just isn't what it once was. Every measure they take to "reduce team costs" just seem to drive expenses higher and higher. And with the proposed scoring rules for next year, I'm not sure anyone will stand a chance if they aren't driving a prancing horse.

Racing is the foundation of Honda. Everything it was, and everything it continues to be. This is a real shame.

What about dumping IRL instead!!

LOL watch this space

You'll note that the IRL is a single supplier, spec-engine racing series. Honda's involvement is MUCH MUCH cheaper than the create-it-all-yourself F1 series. Honda will probably still have MotoGP and the other bike series.

Yeah, you are right. It is a total coincidence that Honda might pull the plug on their F1 Team, or sell it, during this time of economic down turn... or is my use of down turn too alarmist. Maybe it is a lull, or an indentation, or a dip?


It could have to do with a down turn on the economy. So why do people still think that it is so clever to post something about it every single story. Look how many people said something about it in the previous news lines. Can we all agree that things are a little slower, except for the people who have lost their job this does not meet the criteria of a crisis, and that it gets old when every news story has to some how tie the items to the economy (sometimes at even great lengths).

I loved the days where we talked about cars more often and every other post wasn't about the economy, Sarah Palin hating, or Dubya hating.
