The legacy was too heavy. USF1 is dead (or not), Campos Meta 1 attempts to survive. Virgin demonstrates the technical limitations of designing a car in CFD. His teams wanted by Max Mosley, are now shame to Formula 1.
In June 2009, surprise USF1, Manor and Campos Meta 1 are advertised as new teams for the 2010 season. The return of small teams was a good idea, but their selection based on a lie. All teams have been developed around a business model to a budget ceiling of 34/45 million.
A willingness to Max Mosley, to replace manufacturers too greedy politically and financially. But a heavy legacy for the FIA and FOTA today. Jean Todt and FOTA want a plan to cut costs rather than budget ceilings. An agreement indicates that the goal is to reach 35 million euros of sponsorship in 2011. A common unofficial agreement.
Except that during this time, USF1, a year after its introduction, died for lack of funding. Campos Meta 1 seeks 20 million euros. The financial result for Virgin Racing could be negative in 2010, help the bank by Lloyd, who has given a loss of 8 million euros.
The failure of his teams was writing fiction join reality. The selection of Sauber and Lotus, is more serious.
Article 9.9 of the Concorde Agreement indicates that only 13 teams were accepted in Formula 1 between 2010 and 2012. But it is a maximum figure, since only 10 teams will receive money from the FOA / FOM. The support fund of 10 million euros in the year 2010 will not be renewed in 2011 and 2012.
The legacy of Max Mosley is a disgrace for Formula 1, a very poor image, that only time can solve.
