Ok, onto speculation time...

Last week @ the Hungarian GP, Dr. Mario said that the collective "we" would find out what's happening with the ongoing negotiations between FIA/FOM and FOTA within a week. Prior to today's announcement of this press conference, BMW has always been very good at communicating that they are in F1 for the long haul. This gets me to thinking that possibly there is something else afoot.

Have the FOTA teams decided on a breakaway series ? Have BMW decided to start their own Open-Wheel racing series for the US?

Hmmm....makes me why-why-why-why-wonder...
