""Just because a bloody judge has said what he's said doesn't make any difference. Nothing's happened.

I thought Biratore and Bernie were mates, or is this a sign of Bernie's constantly changing his mind other wise know as alzheimer's!!

The comments particularly of late are a bit hard to fathom when it comes to Bernie.

His role in this whole affair should be impartial and without comment.

Allow the legal process proceed without further outside intrusion.

FIA have a face to protect and Briatore a axe to grind.

If the truth sees daylight it will be for the benefit of F1 (Who this mess involves) as a sport of credibility who seek justice and not denial.

FIA not only governs F1 however many motorsports worldwide who have to abide by their sanctions and require to be seen as a sanctioning body of credibility or why listen to them and abide by their criteria set down for Motorsport as a whole.

Does anybody remember that Jean Toad chappie, head of the FIA ?

Where we once had verbose micromanagement and more leaks than the Titanic, we now have utter silence, no leaks and a lower public presence than Osama Bin Liner....

Not one word has left Le FIA HQ since on such matters.

Things will obviously change, but it does seem a very different FIA now, what unfolds will be interesting, but there does appear to be a calmness at the helm.

As a naive optimist, I hope that in X races time, when my Crystal ball sees MS turn in on LH, we are actually going to see it handled better than it was before. Maybe fairly even.

alex - perhap Jean Todt (spelt TODT not TOAD which is quite insulting) has enough sense to stay away from the mess created by Mosley.

Your crystal ball is broken (yet again) as Schumacher will be no where near your Lulu Hammy as Lulu Hammy will be miles behind, in fact Merc will run rings round everyone, with Ferrari and Red Bull chasing them.

@andrew mac

He makes a very valid point...Todt's leadership this far ranks up with Fred Goodwin's !

He was pretty quite and sneaky in his politics behind the scenes at Ferrari making deals with Mosley though so....... maybe not hugely surprising.
