Same as Russian election. Liberty Media as party, but what type of party?

Liberty Media

You know, it's like elections in Russia. Here is there is the government (Liberty Media) and there is media face - Chase Carey. He is a very mysterious person to me.
Wants or not, but he will have answer to us. Chase Carey must do everything clear till 2021 year. Whether you like it or not, but I immediately thought of our elections in Russia.
Friends, we still have a lot of time, and the discussion is becoming more interesting, because we are joined by F1 teams' bosses.
However, let's first sum up any results of Liberty Media's reign, cause to understand better what is true and what is false (among the words, promises and actions) in Formula 1 racing. 

Liberty Media

1. Fans. Liberty Media's policy has attracted many F1 fans attention, because was initially (complete in words) focused on fans. Everything in F1 will have to be accessible to everyone F1 fan. True or false?

Mine experiences. 2016 years, Sochi autodrome . There are not so many events for F1 fans, but all of those very interesting. People knows schedule, children had relax on special places, and everything was done by schedule.
2017 years, Sochi autodrome. There are a lot of events for F1 fans, but all of those have nothing to do with the Formula 1. People didn’t understand the schedule; children had relaxed on special places (thanks for organization). Crowds appear, starts a stampede. People didn't understand what is going on. No schedule, even volunteers do not understand why everything is not on time. No one can get an answer. The F1 autograph session lasted 5 minutes, just because there was no organized schedule. For the sake of fairness, I will add-organization was the same, prices were grown up, and quality fell. 

There were a lot of people, but will they come in 2018? It's not the fact
Have you also increased events' quantity, and fell quality? I think Mexico GP  had same situation in 2017
Did Chase Carey choose correct course? What is the future of Formula 1? Will Motorsport be 'elite' tradition or it will be other?
Is it Socialism?
Socialism is a populist economic and political system based on the public ownership (also known as collective or common ownership) of the means of production. Those means include the machinery, tools and factories used to produce goods that aim to directly satisfy human needs. I don’t think so, because we’ve been seeing those who have money get more than ordinary visitors. Alas.
I'm sorry, but seems it isn't true. So, no socialism in Liberty Media direction.

2. Ferrari F1 Team. None of us will know the truth about this strange conflict. I don't think the minor disagreements were the cause of Sergio Marchionne's anger and loud words after. Now tell me, Yes - yes, you, with your knowledge; did anything like that happen with one such team, when was Bernie Ecclestone?
Just look how emotional Ferrari F1 team's boss Sergio Marchionne has spoken out about Liberty Media. I keep the original text from ( The essence of his words is Liberty Media do not understand the technical aspects of the cars.

"Noi continuiamo a credere nella possibilità che ci sia un progetto condiviso che dia un futuro alla Formula 1.... L’obiettivo è ovviamente di restare e io mi sto impegnando in tal senso, ma l’accordo deve arrivare da entrambi le parti e con Ross Brown purtroppo non abbiamo ancora chiarito le questioni tecniche"

Are relations established with F1 teams? Let me forget that FIA is already getting involved in the debate. No. On the one hand, it seems that the F1 teams are pressed. One thing we know better -  there is no system. 

Is it Democracy?  
Democracy in modern usage, is a system of government in which the citizens exercise power directly or elect representatives from among themselves to form a governing body, such as a parliament. Democracy is sometimes referred to as "rule of the majority". Democracy is a system of processing conflicts in which outcomes depend on what participants do, but no single force controls what occurs and its outcomes.
I'm sorry, but seems it isn't true. So, no democracy from  Liberty Media direction.

3. Talk about the budgets in Formula 1 racing
It seems that at the moment it is just talks. Would you like it or not, but even F1 teams bosses don't know the way of Formula 1  develop. 

Perhaps it's just a way of  Liberalism?
Liberalism is a political philosophy or worldview founded on ideas of liberty and equality. Liberals espouse a wide array of views depending on their understanding of these principles, but generally they support ideas and programmes such as freedom of speech, freedom of the press, freedom of religion, free markets, civil rights, democratic societies, secular governments, gender equality and international cooperation. 
Perhaps, on future. I couldn't be able to understand Liberty Media's policy.  I'm always guided by brave F1 bosses' opinion, that is worth to listening.

F1 teams bosses' comments.
I have great respect for Christian Horner, his opinion is always important to me. However, I can't understand why Red Bull's boss tries to treat everything that happens with this (generous) understanding.

"Liberty had a positive first year, they did a lot of good things around the sport," Red Bull team boss Christian Horner told reporters during pre-season testing in Barcelona. 

I think that Mercedes F1 team boss Toto Wolff  is right more then others. He believes the new owner of Formula 1

"It's always easy to criticize the coach from the stands, because making decisions is not always easy," "But in my view, not all the decisions were positive.
Moreover,  he warned 2018 is a "grace period"

Anyway, this means one thing Liberty Media will be asked about promises in all their words by people. Moreover, actions will be taken with vigilance. And it makes me happy, as well as FIA working hard about it.  

Liberty Media

And what type of party? 
It is not clear, it's unknown, except only Chase Carey knows. So here I cannot disagree with a diplomatically flexible and tolerant Zak Brown words. I subscribe to every word.

"Wir haben nichts Definitives vor uns liegen, aber danach verlangen wir. Jedes andere Business hat herausgefunden, wie man das Geschäft effizienter und kosteneffektiver machen kann"

Did Chase Carey choose correct course? What is the future of Formula 1? Will Motorsport be 'elite' tradition or it will be other? We can guess only.
