Talking down the GPWC
At the post-F1 Commission press conference Max Mosley and Bernie Ecclestone both spoke disparagingly of the planned GPWC, the alternative World Championship which the car manufacturers say they will establish in 2008.
"The only certainty is that none of the current members of GPWC, the individuals, will still be in their jobs in 2008, with the possible exception of Luca di Montezemolo," said Max Mosley. "On top of that, we've had all this talk for two years, but we have no sporting regulations from them, we have no technical regulations, there is nothing to show that there is any serious intention to do anything even in 2008. In any event it is all so far into the future it's difficult to predict what is really going to happen so it's difficult to get too interested in what they say. They don't appear so far to be serious."
