With Ferrari blaming Mosley for the current situation in Formula One – with two teams in danger of not making it to the 2010 Bahrain GP due to lack of finance – the former FIA president could not have sit and listen to those accusations without a proper respond. And, according to James Allen on F1, the 69-year old Brit actually found the attacks “quite amusing.”
“(He) hinted that the team had opened a can of worms here and that he had not planned to say anything rude about them before now, but that they have fired the first shot with this attack. He described Ferrari as a middle-aged woman who is jealous of the attention new beautiful women around her are getting!” said James Allen on F1.
According to the same source, Mosley insisted that the FIA selection process for the new teams did not have any flaws, as the current financially-wrecked outfits were closely checked by the FIA at the time of their entry application.
While hinting that Campos Grand Prix and US F1 will probably merge in order to survive in the series, Mosley doubts Stefan GP will make it to the 2010 grid. And that's not because the FIA would have something against it, but because all the teams have to agree on that new entry, and Ferrari will probably vote against it.
In their controversial column this week, Ferrari referred to Stefan GP as the “Serbian vultures.” Apart from that, the fact that former McLaren designer Mike Coughlan is currently part of the Serbian outfit – he was the man who triggered the spy-gate a few years back – is also something Ferrari will certainly not go over when asked to agree with the Serbs' entry.
