I can’t make up my mind whether a FOTA split is a good thing or not. It might mean more racing, if FIA F1 also survives, which is likely methinks, as there were plenty of privateer teams interested.
I have a feeling though that there will be some compromise reached before the end of the business today, though there’s going to be sleepless nights ahead for several players, but maybe they don’t sleep anyway.
The new FIA F2 series looks interesting, Williams chassis and a 1.8 4 cylinder turbo charged engine, if my memory serves me right (can’t be guaranteed)
The photo is Nelson Piquet Jr. racing in an F3 race at Castle Combe 19/6/2004. I seem to remember he crashed out during race 1, a form he seems to have taken with him to F1. Race two was run under changeable conditions. No formula 3 at Castle Combe this year.
