Those of you who watched the Japanese GP Qualifications heard a brief mention of an international F1 opinion survey sponsored by ING and F1 Racing magazine. For those who couldn't capture the lengthy link here it is so you can add your opinions:

Here's my survey:

The current F1 / FIA management is doing their best to ruin the sport. Between cancelling BOTH of the North American events, and the "Ferrari International Assistance" program...

What was up with the call against Seabass? Maybe everyone should just drive off into the grass whenever they see a red car behind them.

Arriving home from the event today I was totally stunned to read that they penalized Bourdais rather than Massa. I've been a fan of F1 for over 40 years but the ludicrous decisions this year are really straining my interest in this activity I previously considered to be a sport. I'm also sick of Bernie throwing up more featureless Hermann Tilke tracks wherever deeper pockets can be found than at the traditional F1 venues. And I'm still pretty disgusted with Mad Max's shenanigans! Yep, I'm getting pretty sick of it, too...

Here's further evidence that Bernie really doesn't understand what's going on in F1...

While I think there's a time & place for a single-engine spec seires, F1 is not that place.

Does Ferrari really have the capacity to make all the engines for both F1 and A1GP? (I doubt any other sources are being considered) And I'm just sure Bernie's right when he insists that BMW, Honda, Mercedes Benz, Renault & Toyota will be happy to continue to pump money into a series featuring another marque's engine... :roll:
