THIS IS NOTHING NEW TO THE SPORT.

These politics have existed for as long as the F1 world championship, $hit even longer. Since Grand Prix racing started. It will never go away.

This in part and parcel of Grand Prix racing, sorry to say. If it bugs you a lot, go watch Spedvision World Challenge or kart racing.
+1 on the turbo deaths and FOCA v FICA

I miss the late '90s and early '00s (not just because of Schumi though, I promise )
