The way I understand it, it's not a single person making the decisions. It's a board. Right now, the majority favor the F1 expenditure. My point is that there is reportedly a significant faction within Mercedes that does not. Hence, an unstable situation. We've seen other manufacturers go through the same thing and ultimately get out of F1.

This is why Spanky wasn't so keen on manufacturers dominating the series, other than Ferrari. Williams and McLaren aren't leaving F1. But Renault, Ford, Toyota, BMW, Mercedes? Yes, yes, yes, yes and who knows?

It has been said that man is a rational animal. All my life I have been searching for evidence which could support this.
