Concorde Support

Ron Dennis and Frank Williams have been giving their views on the COncorde Agreement and how to support the smaller teams over the weekend, and some are, shall we say, 'interesting':
Ron On Minardi:
From formula1.com
““firstly it’s $22 million. The second thing is it isn't to do with money. It's to do with some inadequacies, and there are many inadequacies, in the Concorde Agreement, ...No one wants that resolution to impact on any specific team, and there is a whole package which is a compromise which both Paul and Eddie [Jordan] are aware of which does not require anybody to give any money back, but which will lead to a clear resolution of the situation.”
Ron on sharing the money
From formula1.com
"I would like to see 12 teams in F1. Why would I want to see less? I can’t see the logic of it. "...He then said teams should get a greater revenue share than their current 23 per cent, saying: "The simple fact is that the European professional footballers' association enjoys 75 per cent of their revenues."
Frank's on Concorde and taking the FIA to court
From formula1.com
""I earnestly believe teams will take care of Paul Stoddart," he said in Melbourne. He continued, saying that in similar past crises “a number of teams, usually the same teams, coughed up in silence and without complaint. Why? Because we have signed a document and because we believe the document...right now we are honouring our commitments to the Concorde Agreement..."It is one lawyer working in the Swiss Chamber of Commerce. He will deliberate the matter [the arbitration ]and will make his own decision in due course. But it could take up to five months. In the meantime, we are here to go racing."
Note: each quote from a different story

So, Minardi are apparantly safe; racing is the priority; and the teams want more money...
