…I agree with Max Mosley.
The former FIA President has been on BBC Radio 5 live as a result of the collapse of Caterham and Marussia and I have to say that I agree with his views.
“The big problem is that the big teams have so much more money than teams like Caterham and Marussia,” he said. “From a sporting point of view, the sport should split the money equally and then let the teams get as much sponsorship as they can. A team like Ferrari will always get more sponsorship than Marussia, but if they all get the same basic money, then they all start on a level-playing field, particularly if you have a cost cap where you limit the amount of money each team is allowed to spend.”
We also seem to agree on the engines.
“I’m in favour of the greener engines,” Mosley said. “The mistake was not saying to the big manufacturers that you can spend as much as you want on research but the maximum you can charge per season is something like £3-4m instead of the £15-20m, which I believe it is now.”
All very sound, Max.
