Bernie, you might be no angel yourself but please, as the boss of F1 who has made some faux pas saying it would be good to go back to Bahrain etc please be a little more considerate than to say you believe the Murdoch's run their businesses well !! If that were the case I doubt they would be in the **** they are in .......

It is good to know this rotten News Of The World phone-hacking scandal has resulted in this good news for f1 fans. This is no compensation to any of the thousands of NoTWs victims but F1 is now and will remain the peoples sport for some time to come .

According to yalla f1, Channel 5 are likely to be MrE's first choice.

Going to News Corp would be a PR disaster. No one in their right mind will want to be associated with this frternity of filth.

Poor BE, poor Murdock. I sit and just cry over billionares having problems. I have watched all cable news go totally down the toilet since murdock started fox news in the USA. If given the chance he would do the same to F1. Ratings at all costs since only money matters to this foul man. Not sport, not objectivity, just money.
