A question that must be asked

NEWS STORY
18/09/2006

The press release issued by the FIA following today's meeting with the teams and manufacturers, states that; "the objective of all new Formula One regulations should be to maintain F1 as the pinnacle of motor sport and to satisfy at least one of the following criteria: to improve the show, to improve cost effectiveness, to improve safety, to promote technology relevant to society at large, to facilitate brand recognition".

However, the very next line of that same press release calls for the "establishment of a Working Group to discuss means to restrict the use of wind tunnels, simulators (test rigs), simulations and where appropriate, the numbers of personnel".

So, on the one hand the powers that be are seeking to "maintain F1 as the pinnacle of motor sport", yet clearly determined to take away many of the tools that make this possible.

The question must be asked, how can F1 remain the pinnacle of motorsport when sop many of the tools that make it possible are being taken away, or at least severely restricted.
