The FIA and the future of motorsport

Look at the inability to make the correct decisions at the right time.
No decisions on diffusers even though a problem is known about for months.
No control of the race from race control during the race.
Stewards who do not appear to have the right qualifications before the season starts (but do appear to be owed favours by the "management").
Weird/draconian decisions made by the stewards on race day. Weird/draconian decisions made by the stewards later to correct the mistakes.
Some of the decisions only required because of the lack of race control.
Absolutely no consistency about the punishments.
A stated aim to save money, but making teams spend a fortune on KERS and possibly a fortune on reworking the cars because of diffusers when an early decision would have prevented the problem from arising.
I reckon the lunatics are running the asylum and I wonder if motorsport will be able to survive their incompetence.
Can the FIA be trusted with the future of motorsport?

Another way to put it is: who else - but that poll has already been asked xxx times.
More interesting question: who should run the FIA?
But OK, that has also been asked before.....
Next question: how should be run?
I think that's more like the real question.
And the beginning of an answer.
