Renewed F1 war would be 'disaster' - Horner
« on: June 27, 2009, 06:54:53 PM »

Christian is right of course, I think his use of the word scab may tell us more about his feelings towards Max than he can express in this piece.  

Additional ''confusion and controversy'' not needed says Christian Horner Red Bull Team principal.

Wednesday saw happiness about the FIA accord, where an agreement between the existing official series' ruling bodies and the eight rebel teams was found to race ahead at least through to 2012!

Williams and Force India aside, unity was the strength of the FOTA position throughout the crisis, and it is this that is believed to have ultimately resolved FIA President Max Mosley to sit down and concede ground on multiple points.

But Friday was a new day: a furious Mosley demanding that the Formula One Teams Association apologise for what he considers as a misrepresentation of the outcome to the media after press reports explained that FOTA had won the 'war'.

Having announced his retirement the same day that 'peace' was declared, the Briton is once again considering seeking another mandate as FIA President as he sees a new crisis looming on the horizon.

Red Bull's Christian Horner, however, believes re-opening the scab on Wednesday's apparently healing wounds and sparking a new war with the FIA would be a "disaster."

"To enter into more confusion and controversy would be a disaster for Formula One," the Team Principal is quoted as saying by the German news agency SID.

Horner said he appreciates the ground conceded by the FIA on Wednesday, praises Mosley for his "fantastic work in the area of car and circuit safety," and hopes the pact does not now fall apart.

Does sound like Christian is saying nice job with all the good things you have done Max, but the bad now out weighs the good so, Bye Bye!! He is right though, if this all sparks up again because of Max's stubbornness I reckon we can kiss good bye to F1 as we know it.
