Toyota and BMW quit Formula 1, Renault may follow

Sad news for the king discipline of motorsports: two of the factory teams, Toyota and BMW, have announced that they will not participate in the 2010 FIA Formula 1 World Championship, and rumours say that Renault is about to do so as well.

With the French manufacturer’s decision due in December, we ask ourselves if this is actually a good thing for Formula 1. Some of you might say yes, it’s a good thing, back in the 80’s most of the teams were privately owned so with the new names coming in next year we’re all good for the season. On the other hand, we have guys that say big car companies show some passion by trying to race at the top. I guess we’ll have to wait and see to find out.
