are becoming a bit of a soap opera.
Now Renault, their only chance at getting an engine better than a Honda, are going to make them grovel. Of course RBR is jumping up and down throwing a hissy fit in Bernie's office saying he had better fix it or they are going to run away.
It's really becoming more like a kindergarten than professional sport. As much as I would love to be a fly on the wall during some of the discussions, what they are allowing to leak into the press is embarrassing enough.
You can hardly blame Cyril for suggesting it might be a bit much for the Renault board to swallow to deal with RBR after all the public criticism? I don't. Unfortunately now RBR won't sign the divorce papers, so Renault may actually be bound to supply them engines. We will see I guess.

Seriously Someone probably knew, but didn't bother to tell anyone and they discovered it just before FP1, wasting much of the session cleaning it up.

This happened back in July, but I missed it at the time. It seems I was not the only one. It's at times like this I wish I did have money and space, as I would have loved to have an Osella Formula 1 car.

AutoWeek is reporting that Lotus has been locked out of the paddock at Sochi. Team staff were spotted sitting on the ground or using a plastic garden table outside the locked paddock facilities.
I hope the team can survive long enough for Renault to take over.

Fire up BBC F1 page and two headlines blast out. One, a feature by Allan McNish titled 'Is Formula 1 losing its soul?', followed by another headline 'F1 may be sold this year - Ecclestone'.
The McNish article is fairly light reading, mainly about the 4 European races on the chopping block. We've re-hashed the discussion here and are in apparent agreement, but it won't matter what any of us think if some rich dictator is handing Bernie a multi-hundred million dollar cheque.
The idea that F1 may be sold off is hopeful news in one sense all the while being a bit worrying in another. I've already written more words than the author of that puny story who probably put it together using a quote as Bernie was coming through a door somewhere. Of course the mention that Bernie was asked to remain as commercial chief...please save us.
If it is sold, I just hope the controlling party involves someone who is
a) passionate about motorsports and hopefully even F1 in particular
b) someone who respects the sports history and tradition (read that as someone who thinks at least half the season should remain in Europe)
c) someone who has used and understands the internet in a 'big picture' kinda way as opposed to a 'I can make HOW MUCH selling an app??' kinda way.
c - part 2) someone who understands that the under 40 crowd and a bunch of us well beyond that, don't watch terrestrial TV any longer, and that TV commercial contracts need to be torn up and put F1 streams on the internet with creativity (let us control or at least choose from camera direction that appeals to us, allow us to spin back our own replays to see what we wanted to see again and when...well I could go on and on, but you get what I mean).
d) someone who will ban Niki Lauda from the paddock, regardless of his position with RTL TV and Mercedes.
