BRASILIA DROHT SAISON WITHOUT BRASILIAN FAHRER
No more driver in the field next year and an uncertain formula-1 future for the race in Interlagos. At the moment, all that remains is the principle of hope, even with Felipe Massa, the last remaining driver from the land of Formula One legend Ayrton Senna.
“It is true that we are not going through an easy time financially in Brazil,” said the 36-year-old before his second, but now also last home farewell races in the Motorsport Royal Class.
COMPLETED DRUGS OR POLITICAL CHANGE PLAYS
Ferrari even threatened to exit again. After the release of the planned new engine rules from 2021, the new Formula One owners (Liberty Media) will also feel the (usual old) power struggles. Together with Ferrari, the two other manufacturers had also criticised the plans, but did not threaten an exit.
Red-Bull team leader Christian Horner reacted to them in Brazil. Formula 1 has a habit of running its business through the media,”said Horner”autosport.com”,”it is all part of the theatre and the show and part of the intrigue that is formula 1″. Horner, who himself has been an active part of this Formula One show for years, hopes that the new owners will have the courage to implement their plans.
