The CoTA ownership group's asshattery is well known by now, I think. I laughed when they tried to cowboy stunt their way into a better F1 deal from Bernie Ecclestone, who simply announced a New York GP and graciously accepted even more money from CoTA when they swallowed the original terms.
Bernie's ol' friend Tavo was tossed aside, with severance, but that was just business, mate . . .
