When the west is so accommodating, why is there so much religious suppression in the gulf? I'm referring here specifically to KSA and Qatar (a single church located in the middle of nowhere doesn't count as freedom of religion). THIS is freedom of speech.....Ever seen any public/private broadcasters anywhere in the gulf playing church carols or hindu hymns on national television? I haven't. And I'm not certain if I ever will.

So in 12 months time there could be just six teams left on the grid, all forced to run three-car teams to maintain the semblance of a show. That is the harsh truth that spells out the finances of Formula One today.
