Interesting and IMO it was bound to happen. When I ran GT cars Hobbs told me as he had said on the air a couple of times "The teams are not just racing a car maker. They are racing all of Italy"
For Italy, nevermind that Alfa Romeo and Maserati have been around longer. They don't have the racing pedigree Ferrari does.
For Germany, not even Mercedes could make that claim.
Well, in reality the Fiat-Chrysler group is a Dutch holding, and with a proposed Fiat-Chrysler and Renault merger on the horizon, who knows.
Within the Renault alliance, Nissan would wind up with even less voting rights, but they could always bring Carlos Ghosn out of Japanese jail to straighten things out
Macron's pressure on Ghosn (against his advice) to increase Renaults part ownership of Nissan is seen as the catalyst of the whole Ghosn charade.
Well, Ghosn not being from Japan was probably the greatest offense.
Funny, if the merger goes through, Nissan will be even less Japanese.
