Madder than Hell

Well, I know I've been saying that the FIA et al should really be capable of making a decision on the Belgian GP, but I didn't think they'd all make the wrong one.

It's a black day for Formula One when the authorities allow stupid things like the cancellation to happen. Spa is undoubtedly the best circuit on the calendar (in the world?) and any nobody should care that the "facilities" need a bit of improvement.

The FIA and the commercial rights holder must take the responsibility for not having a backup solution in place, but no doubt they will simply claim that there was a contract in place and it was broken. They simply do not understand their responsibility to the millions of fans that think of F1 as a sport, not a business.

Stop fiddling with the distribution of money to manufacturers and concentrate on the core business. Getting cars racing on tracks.
