Instead of constantly search for new cost-cutting ideas, why do F1 teams not consider a breakaway series again? Would getting rid of CVC and Bernie Ecclestone not make the sport sustain itself and pay for cutting-edge innovation, attract more modern media exposure and allow for a better (from a fan's perspective) calendar?

Sasha, I've been around F1 for a long time and I have seen it transform from a racing event that few knew about to what it is today.
As a matter of fact, in 1973 the first time I went to Monaco working for Bernie's Brabham team I drove there in a Ford Transit van and open trailer with an F1 car on the back!
