    Formula One faces a possible investigation by the European Union after both Force India and Sauber lodged official complaints into how the sport is governed.

    The two teams are unhappy with how prize money is distributed and believe it to be skewed in favour of the sport’s most-established teams. Both are also reportedly unhappy not to be included in the rule-making F1 strategy group which consists of Mercedes, McLaren, Ferrari, Red Bull and Williams, as well as Bernie Ecclestone, chief executive of the Formula One Group, and the FIA president Jean Todt.

    Anyone else seen this yet?

    Ah the EUSSR have to stick their noses into something again. Thankfully we don't more important issues to worry about on this continent.

    Well, in all fairness, you have to blame Sauber and Force India for complaining to them in the first place....

    Which is perfectly fine as F1 has to comply to the same rules everyone else has. This is not Bernie-Land after all.
