Yeah, given the fact that VAG would be in direct competition with the likes of BMW & Mercedes they should have some kind of representation. Even if thet just produced an engine for a few years for the smaller teams to get a foot in.
VAG must have a smallish motorsort budget apart from the likes of the R8 , as they've no large presence in rallying either.....judging from the way companies are leaving the WRC , mebbe the bean counters don't see motorsport as a cost effective advertising option anymore....sadly..
That's where the problem lies, fecking bean counters, and not enough engineers sitting in the top chairs of the manufacturer's.
Example, one top ranking eejit at Ford asked the question, Who's this Eddie Irvine we are payng 7 million a year to. Now, I ask you, what was this gobshite doing in a motorsports department. It's not that Eddie had a small profile in F1.
