This is it,the beginning of the end of F1 is on the way,this man is going to get his hands on this great sport and ruin it for everyone,make the most of it now because it will never be the same after this.

This is great news for F1 fans. The only problem is that most fans can't or will not see it. This consortium will make a great success of F1 whereas the current owners CVC and Ecclestone have been making a real mess of this great sport. News Corp has an excellent track record in football and cricket, so, embrace change and look forward to an exciting future.

"I find it funny when I see people calling for Bernie to step down, come to his defense when he is threatened like this. It's been seen across a few other forums as well".

I think you'll find this is because Bernie lets most of the tv viewing public watch F1 for free but when murdoch gets his talons on F1 he'll probably charge about 14.99 pounds a race on pay per view.

Thats why i'd sooner have bernie rather than murdoch.

In my case if he does charge per race it will be bye bye F1.

who ever runs or owns F1 it will be run in ruthless way for huge financial gain. The host countries should pay a fraction of the costs they do at present! Then maybe motor sport for everyone else would be more afordable.

I already pay Murdoch £60 a month as it is for my Sky package so there is no way whatsoever that i am going to give him any extra just to watch F1,and there is no way i could afford £14.99 to watch each race so that really would be it for me.

If Murdoch does get hold of F1 and there is no more F1 on free to air TV, then I query whether companies like Red Bull or Vodafone will remain involved for long, since the value of F1 to them is presumably the huge advertising exposure free to air telecasts of races gives to them.
