I agree with Racing Point from the perspective that the FIA is inconsistent, not transparent, and caters to squeaky wheels concluding that their management lacks resolve and are not resolute to the purpose of their being there. The inconsistency part is well described in the article. The lack of transparency is classically shown in the manner they shoved the Ferrari engine issue under the carpet hoping and curiosity would go away. Then there is the way that Renault continued to whine after the FIA's adjudication on brake ducts and were played to by the governing body. What other little deals that have affected the sport have been made. Frankly, their behavior can be remedied by changing its management. The sport can remain and become more interesting if the FIA managed F1 properly
I am not a NASCAR fan, but their governance is even handed, fair and absolute. The FIA could learn something from them. Whining never enters the picture in that series because it NEVER gets anywhere. We need a return to the days of Max Mosely, who at least had some balls!
