Warsaw????? You must be joking!!!!! Thereis no way Poland would want to be fleeced by Bernie.

Bernie wants to make money on F1 and win every time. Everyone else has to be a loser. He can play this game alone then.

Bernie is sounding like the tyrant he is. He should show a bit more loyalty to a country who has an extensive history with F1. Lets be honest, it's an exorbitantly expensive fee to pay. On top of infrastructure ( ie the track ), corporate a#s licking, telecommunications, media, hospitality, medical etc etc, he should understand that it's very hard to make a buck out of an F1 race (beside him). The lord mayor is speaking from his heart, but probably out of line ( ie the decision doesn't rest with him). The race will stay in Melbourne, or at the very least Australia.....Sydney!
