[list][*]Honda pulled out of F1 in December 2008 citing economic reasons.[*]The Formula One Teams Association (FOTA) was created for the teams to get together and present a united front against FOM and FIA. They announced a 50% budget cut for 2010, no testing during the 2009 season, 8 engines for the whole season per driver/car....
