This will most certainly get your attention ! Or it could be nothing much to an F-1 team.....

I agree with Lou that the fine wasn't very much in comparison, because a typical Formula 1 team takes about $100 million to run.  You think it's hard getting money for a NASCAR team?  Try getting a F1 team off the ground.

Some years ago, there was a rumor that Bill Gates and Microsoft wanted to be involved in F1, but that eventually they decided not to sponsor a team.  That would have redefined big money in the sport! Wink

They said on Wind Tunnel last night as to how it would be divided up and given to different things.  I can't remember exactly what, but it sounded okay to me.
