Drivers strike ? Where is this coming from ?

I am not sure if another scandal is what F1 needs right now but rumours are the F1 drivers are planning some kind of strike during British GP. The reason – the sharp hike in the superlicense fees.

The web is full of this now so there is no need to repeat the whole story here. What I wonder is if these rumours are true (big if here) why now ? Why would the F1 drivers wait for half a year after Max Mosley increased their superlicense fees before doing something about it ? The timing of bringing out another Mosley related issue seems to be just a bit too convenient and I am not sure if the drivers actually have something to do with it …
