Will this destroy Formula 1?

Victoria Derbyshire | 08:42 AM, Friday, 19 June 2009

We woke up at Silverstone to the dramatic news that eight out of ten of the F1 teams have announced they're leaving to set up their own breakaway series.

BBC Sport: F1 teams drop breakaway bombshell

It's because of a row with the FIA (world motorsport's governing body) over how much money the teams spend.

But will the eight, including Ferrari, McLaren and Brawn GP, really break away?

Or is this a way of putting the squeeze on the FIA to get what they want?

From 10am this morning we'll talk to the main players: head of Brawn GP, Ross Brawn and the big boss, president of the FIA, Max Mosely.

Could this destroy F1 as we know it?

You can listen again to the programme on iPlayer
