Another One Bites The Dust

This is a big story, but I don’t have much time to report on it today. It was confirmed earlier today that BMW Sauber is going to be leaving F1 at the end of this season. Not only does this give rise to the FIA saying “we told you so,” but it is just plain bad for the sport. BMW is a big name all over the world and they have a huge following. Formula One still has the big names in Ferrari and McLaren, but more people drive a BMW than either Ferraris or McLarens combined (of course it’s Mercedes power, but let’s be honest, it’s all McLaren with F1). This is really big because it is another manufacturer, much like Honda, that is now leaving and this will only open the door for more of the manufacturers to try and leave (though I really hope not). We will see what happens with this and I will have much more tomorrow.
