What I'm wondering is who's suddenly out to get Bernie. I'm thinking some of his ill thought out comments about Hitler and such like may be coming back to haunt him. From what I've heard bernie has been involved in plenty of didgy stuff over the years but there must be a reason why suddenly someone is out to topple his power. Difficult to have sympathy for someone so calously capitalist as him.

It really is time for him to go he fleeces every race for 10 million and spends his time trying to promote another race in a far off land where there,s only a few Camels to watch to gain another 10mill disregarding the workload for the teams etc.

Welcome to real world this happens all time it's just mostly people accept what they get and say nothing sounds like greed to me asking for more.

Does anyone really think that the indian GP got the go ahead with out any bribes? keep dreaming , how about russia gp no bribes, china no bribes hmmmm or is it just ok to bribe people if your an oil rich state and have lots of cash to splash thats still a bribe of sorts, luckily for Bernie his attack dog lawyers will eat this guy alive and he will continue as normal.i for one dont care too much about this it wont effect the racing

@mart247 "Really, who cares !"

I care. Bernie for years has been screwing f1 fans by charging extortionate fee's to circuits to host F1 to the point we almost lost the British GP and even though its saved, how much does Silverstone have to charge a ticket to barely break even?

Thanks for the heads up on pitpass.com. I was not aware of that site and have just spent an enjoyable hour over a couple of cups of good coffee reading some of the well written articles. I'll definitely be a regular visitor there so your pointer is much appreciated.
