    Not too sad to see them go tbh, apart from the probable job losses. Too corporate and '3 year plan' mentality.
    Wouldn't be sad to see Toyota go either.
    Much prefer proper independent racing teams, whose whole dna is to race

    I hope Kubica can get a drive next season. He is such a talant. He just needs a competative car.

    I'm not surprised really and I think other teams will most probably follow. Formula 1 costs an incredible amount of money and investment. Profits are being squeezed due to the recession and clearly large companies are not making anywhere near the profits they'd like.
    BMW as we all know primarily target the luxury car market and they're probably selling so few cars that continuing with Formula 1 could ruin them.

    I blame the 3rd-lane hogging arrogant t*ssers who drive their cars, perhaps they are finally ruining their image!?
