Bernie allegedly paying bribes in order to further his own and his investors finances?

who'd have thought the little man might value money above his integrity and the good of the sport :rolleyes:

While I wouldn't put anything past Bernie, you have to wonder about the veracity of the letter.

After all, what level of sanity must one possess to think it a great idea to have your *lawyer* send a *letter* demanding that a short-fall in your bribe be made good, along with a financial penalty?

Or alternatively, for a more balanced report, go to Pitpass.com who are like the Financial Times of motorsport websites. We all know that 'Crash' is the News of the World end of the spectrum

Really, who cares ! The show is what we see and judge people on and as long as that continues to be of a suitable standard, who cares how it gets there. It absolutely doesn't affect us. Why get upset about it, tell me someone who hasn't tried or done this sort of thing in F1, its just the scale that varies. Move on.
