"the influence of the top of a sport is always big"
Thats exactly attitude that introduces bad feeling accross sport...
What other discipline would make such an assumption !!!
How on earth can any developments along lines of RSX help any wave sailors/slalom sailors etc...And F1 is totally self supporting financially; through sponsorship; TV rights and the benefits it brings to companies involved.
That as we all know is not the case with racing in WS. Nobody wants to watch it;the developments it brings benefits just those involved and it does not reflect anything to do with rest of sport.
The withdrawal of WS from Olympics is just part of the demise generally assocxiated with racing in WS. It will affect nobody except those racing...Precious few. (read other threads; examine board sales !!!)
