Aaaaaah, that'll be the 'tired old theory' that Mad Max freely admitted to a month or so ago, then?
I seem to remember something along the lines of "we do favour Ferarri in our decisions, because they are Italian and most others in the teams/FIA etc are British and we don't want them to think we are prejudiced"
wasn't exactly those words - but that was the message. I'll go try and find it again.
Hey - won't it be really funny if Kovy goes to McLaren (we all know how Ron likes his Finns) and decides to spill the beans on Renault?
Probably doesn't know anything, mind...
Whilst looking for above mentioned Mosley interview, I stumbled upon this, from after the Mclaren/Ferrari case:
"What's very important though is that people believe the spying has been stopped and will continue to be stopped. Then it does no harm at all.
"The only harm would come if people started to believe it was endemic and we couldn't stamp it out."
Also - read THIS
one (of many that say the same) and you can't fail to see that the FIA suck big time.
Sort of an EU Commission for motorsport!
