Ferrari threatened to quit F1 and start up their own racing based with FOTA because of the approach of the FIA's budget cap....FOTA recommended a gradual cost deduction each year. But FIA was insisting to have all teams to implement a budget cap of 30-50 mil Euros...which is impossible for major teams like Ferrari, McLaren, Renault...etc...which spends hundreds of million or even billion each year to the sport.....
BMW Sauber quit because the management didn't see any improvement to the team compare to 2006-2008 seasons...from the past three years we can see BMW Sauber is improving bit by bit...and the mangement had a target of winning the championship within three years, with this year's slump, the management cannot see (or do not want to see) any improvement and they do not feel its worth to invest more into the team anymore.....
