The last British Grand Prix to be held at Silverstone :( The Donington circuit is still under construction, but Bernie has said the British GP will not return to Silverstone.

FOTA have said they’re going to run their own series next year if they can’t reach agreement with the FIA. It’s interesting to hear that the owners of the Monaco circuit said they will not host a race that does not include Ferrari.

The best solution for everyone (including the fans) is that Bernie & Max get the boot!

Meanwhile, back on track… Vettel was fastest (1:19.400) followed by teammate Webber and Button.

The FIA's deadline is 5pm today, and they've said they won't talk about FOTA's issues until they sign up *unconditionally*. Max & Bernie must be clinically insane - would they ever do something like that?

I'm hoping the split goes ahead; they need to dump the (mis)management team at FIA ... well, they should have done it years ago.

Mind you, I'm sure any new formula/organisation will have politics and megalomaniacs, just the same as the FIA, but at least they should have learned from the current experiences and put some checks & balances in place.
