He's on a hiding to nothing with you guys - if he had enforced the fees, you'd be slagging him off. He decides (quite properly) not to, and you slag him off.

I'm betting that in years to come, after his eventual retirement from F1, that people will realise that maybe he wasn't as bad as all that. If you can remember how shambolic it all was before he took F1 by the scruff of it's neck and organised it, just think on that...If you're too young to remember, or to have experienced it, then just ask a few old codgers (like me)...

While it may have been abit, as you put it "shambolic" in the years previous to his enterance (that is also the years many refer to as the golden age of racing..). and yes while he initially made it better he has now become to powerful within the F1 organisation and holds F1 to ransom around the world, putting money before quality - hence why we are even in this part of the world at all!! Its time for him to go and let someone with some fresher eyes look at the sport..

@ Maveric - yes, was considered a "golden age" - the rule book was smaller, and at one period we had so many superlative drivers all together. But you also had the farce of Balestre's attacks on the teams efforts headed by Ecclestone, poor safety levels and, still too many fatalities....

@Green Monster - No he's not - he is a successful (very) hard-nosed businessman. I'm assuming the "green" in your name is from envy?
