This is how the piece should have read: leading influential and WIDELY HATED F1 commercial rights-holder Bernie Ecclestone and much-loved former BBC and ITV-F1 commentator Murray Walker. I reckon a knighthood for Brawn and an execution for Greedy Troll, perfect end to the season.

I think most of us were saying that after the Brazilian GP. Seems that BE is behind the times yet again, but there again does anyone listen to what he says anymore. He just seems to contradict himself and talk crap, time for the commercial rights to be handed over the F1 team principles.

It's not that long since Bernie critisised the name Brawn GP for a race team, saying that it meant nothing - he's just an engineer. And now Bernie wants him knighted!

Typical inconsistency from Bernie, but I do agree that Ross should be honoured.
