I doubt it. Every team has to abide by the rules.

BMW just had a really, really bad season.

And honestly, sure money is an issue... but it's not like BMW is short on cash or is lacking sponsorship. They have the money/resources to continue.

I think poor performance is the main reason they are pulling out.
