    "If FOTA proceeds like this, F1 will be destroyed. Yes, they are able to create a new series but..... it wouldn't make sense. Then one half of the fans would go to the FIA races, the other half to the FOTA races. The manufacturers have the cars and the drivers everyone wants to see, so all the fans will go to the FOTA races".

    -> Ehhh....yes. No need for any sense, Niki... :rolleyes:

    I think the consensus would be not a 50% divide as he mentions but more like a 75% FOTA, 25% FIA.

    Well, he said that there will be a 50/50 divide and a 100/0 divide in the same sentence :D

    25% for MaxBern? I'd guess 10 %, subject to FIA ticket prices dropping off a cliff.

    Niki seems to have lost his train of thought...

    I think he's on to something here.
    Half would follow FIA.
    Half would go to FOTA.
    And half would give up and watch NASCAR.

    I'd say 100% of fans to the new series,

    than 15% will also watch few races of Bernie Max show just to watch that trainwreck

    Well yes , but I'd say at least 80% FOTA...

    There would probably be alot watching the FIA for a laugh tho!!.

    I predict the vast majority would follow FOTA and the Max and Bernie Blueplate Special series would die. :eek:
