    Anyway, I dont see Fernandes or Kolles as the villan here. Its more down to our F1 Promoter who is hoping to see them crumble along with other teams anyway. I feel sorry for the people who will be out of work and the people who wont have an oppertunity

    It's almost as if he is trying to force the grid down to the 8 teams required to introduce 3 car teams.

    ok Just after the post I made above, The BBC post this:

    All the Bernie quotes contradict what he says elsewhere earlier in the week:

    I can't see it myself, Ferrari and McLaren might do it. I can't see RB doing it with both teams so they might just field the 2 cars or amalgamate the teams making their overall operation far more cost effective. Either way, the sport is still looking pretty fragile.

    Welp, apparently the Caterham staff got told not to come in by the administrators this morning.

    Surprised Bernie even showed the heart to agree to that to be honest.

    I really can't see Caterham recovering now, and they'll only make Abu Dhabi if it promises significant financial benefits, which is doubtful. I can't believe they haven't been seeking significant investment before now, so where it's going to come from now I've no idea.

    Apparently it's not Bernie being generous and letting teams miss races, if anything he's being the opposite. Jennie Gow (amongst others) have tweeted that the Concorde agreement lets teams miss 3 races without penalty. So whether they make Abu Dhabi or not should be irrelevant.

    The plus side is this will force Bernie to do something, since even the big teams don't need this sort of bad publicity hanging around the sport (remember the US 2005 backlash)

    @pitlanetalk: Marussia F1 Team very close to £55m rescue deal, according to The Telegraph. http://t.co/DH2FjxrGPQ #F1 #Formula1

    Breaking news. From 2016, having bankrupted all of F1's current competitors, Bernie plans to run eight 3-car teams driven exclusively by CVC shareholders: "It's time to cut out the middlemen", quoth the controversialist, with a crooked smile, "I don't know why I never thought of it before. It'll be super."
