Plus ca change plus c'est le meme chose...

That what the French say and with Max Mosley's exit and the seemingly inevitable election of Jean Todt in his place, at the FIA too the more things change the more they stay the same.

Axis is bored with F1 politics, in fact, borderline bored with F1 in general after the events of this season. Just a short comment: while certainly Todt is a professional with vast experience he is also Mosley's man which means he would keep Mosley's infrastructure within the FIA. His association with Ferrari will assure that any future decision by the FIA will be seen, with or without merit, as pro Maranello.

Formula 1 had a chance for a fresh start, for new thinking and they threw it away. Old men and old ideas are firmly in charge.

And here is the rest of it.

  1. Although I share the sentiment, I'm trying to remain optimistic that Todt will prove to be his own man, or that Vatanen isn't out of this yet.

    At least that is my hope. Things can't possibly get worse, can they?
