Biltillverkarnas organisation (med Volvo och SAAB) stödjer FOTA

Det har gått några rundor i det här och jag är inte helt uppdaterad, men efter att FIA presenterade listan över deltagare nästa säsong är det oavsett långt ifrån klart vilka som kommer köra..

Så för någon dag sen gick biltillverkarnas organisation i Europa ut med ett pressmeddelande där man berättade att man stödjer stallföreningen FOTAs ställning i fighten med FIA. På bloggen Motor Racing Journal hittade jag både pressmeddelandet och några sköna kommentarer som förklarar vad det egentligen handlade om;

“Today, the members of the Board of the European Automobile Manufacturer’s Association discussed the current situation prevailing in Formula One, and have concluded that the current governance system cannot continue.”

Max Mosley, please leave.

“ACEA has come to the conclusion that the FIA needs a modernised and transparent governance system and processes, including the revision of its constitution, to ensure the voice of its members, worldwide motorsport competitors and motorists are properly reflected.”

That is to say, screw you Max Mosley. We’re tired of you shoving arbitrary rules down our throats and not listening to us. And furthermore:

“The ACEA members support the activities and objectives of the Formula One Teams Association to establish stable governance, clear and transparent rules which are common to all competitors to achieve cost reductions including a proper attribution of revenues to the F1 teams, in order to deliver a sustainable attractive sport for the worldwide public.”

In other words, screw Max Mosley, Bernie Ecclestone and CVC dogs. Give us a proper share of the revenue.

“Unless these objectives are met, the BMW, Ferrari, Mercedes, Renault and Toyota along with the other teams are determined to find an alternative way to practice this sport in a manner which provides clarity, certainty of rules and administration, and a fair allocation of revenues to the competing teams.”

If Max doesn’t leave then we will.

“The European automotive industry is key to the strength and competitiveness of Europe. The ACEA members are BMW Group, DAF Trucks, Daimler, FIAT Group, Ford of Europe, General Motors Europe, Jaguar Land Rover, MAN Nutzfahrzeuge, Porsche, PSA Peugeot Citroën, Renault, Scania, Toyota Motor Europe, Volkswagen and Volvo. They provide direct employment to more than 2.3 million people and indirectly support another 10 million jobs. Annually, ACEA members invest €20 billion in R&D, or 4% of turnover.”

Oh yeah. Look who we are bitches!

    Tydligt meddelande till Max att de som faktiskt står för showen inte tänker låta sig hunsas hursomhelst längre… 🙂
