Ferrari slams Mosley's "Holy War"

In a column worthy of the best of the Red Bulletin, Ferrari’s Horse Whisperer took a shot at F1’s new teams, claiming “Of the thirteen teams who signed up, or were induced to sign up, for this year’s Championship, to date only eleven of them have heeded the call, turning up on track, some later than others, and while some have managed just a few hundred kilometres, others have done more, but at a much reduced pace.”

The column saved its harshest reviews for Campos Meta, questioning “a sudden cash injection from a munificent white knight, well used to this sort of last minute rescue deal” and, of course, beleaguered USF1, which “appears to have gone into hiding in Charlotte, North Carolina... Amazingly, they still have the impudence to claim that everything is hunky-dory under the starry stripy sky.”

“Serbian vultures” get their just due, as well. Surely the presence of Mike Coughlan feeds that fire.

But the harshest criticism falls on Max Mosley for his “holy war” to make the sport viable for small teams at the expense of BMW and Toyota, who have since left the sport.

Harsh words, but well worth the read.
