  • F1 sort of is a super league already though. You can’t get promoted or relegated it’s just about if you have the money to afford to compete.

  • There was another threat of a breakaway in the 80's too if I'm not mistaken?

  • I would love to see an sort of league like that, but with academy drivers racing f1 cars from a few years ago. Would be an good measurement for the teams concerning their drivers skills and it would make some revenue.

  • They should have left and made a new sport,anyway F1 is not F1 now...FIA is "Hamilton corporation" so i dont see why they didnt left,F1 would have its history but after 2014-2019 we saw some of the worst seasons

  • Apart from the 1981/1982 narrowly avoided FOCA/then-FISA split, between 2004 and 2005 F1 Teams and engine Manufacturers threatened to leave too, could be interesting to also cover those incidents in sort of a Part-2.

  • Some of the f1 team owners at that time were complete numpties for disagreeing with a cost cap system. Given that Renault had flavio who was then banned later on in 2009 for crash gate. BMW and Toyota withdrew out of the sport regardless due to financial crisis (a money saving thing)

  • i thought the super league was literally just them branching off cuz they didnt wanna lose money to smaller teams whereas here it's more like the fia screwed up and the cap was insane and they were running unfair rules so i dont really see that much of a parallel here apart from a part of the competition spliting up ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ correct me if im wrong also sorry for the utter lack of punctuation

  • I don't understand why certain teams were so angry about literally wasting money though? It was unsustainable and it is more apparent now. Now maybe the cap was a bit low but still, a cap is needed to prevent rich teams from just buying their way to victory even though it can lead to bankruptcy or force other teams to either spend unreasonable amounts themselves or get out of the sport, which should not be the case. There are so much unnecessary spending in sports ( almost of all them ) that the salaries/costs etc just get inflated to ridiculous, unsustainable levels.

    LucifyLucify12 dagar sedan
  • 3:44 Absolutely not. FOTA's reason for breaking away makes sense because the regulations from the FIA made zero sense at all. There was 2 different regulations to determine one champion. That's like if F1 and Indycar raced together to determine one champion. Then again, who would voluntarily handicap themselves financially to "build a better car" when building a better car means generally spending more money to get better materials. That's a direct paradox. The ESL clubs' reason for breaking away wasn't made from a broken system. They broke away because they favoured greed over the best achievable form of a meritocracy.
