That's right Bernie, don't worry about the fact that F1 has lost all its action and sparkle, just get more celebrities on the grid and stick it in more countries that have no history of motorsport.

He is right. Pretty much the way F1 is going - more and more races are based out of the Middle East, or SE Asia so F1 is getting trendy down there. All they need is someone like Chandhok to win the WDC.

good idea bernie you frick off to india with your version of f1 and let the parts of the world who actually want and watch f1 have their own series you know what I mean, have it in countries where crowds turn up to watch not these remote sanitised empty circuits only used because some rich git has paid to have his playground filled with expensive toys for his wife and kids to watch droning round and round

It's funny to hear the assinine comments from Bernie never end.

I had the opportunity to sit and have dinner with David Hobbs and the stories he had about Bernie from back in the day were classic. I distinctly remember him telling me that Bernie was downright perplexed that people would go see a baseball game instead of a race at Laguna Seca back in the day.

I guess some things never change.

Well, I guess it is free to air, so people will watch it.

Unlike F1 in the UK next year which has been taken from us to poxy SKY, a company run by a 80 year old man facing serious fraud allegations.

Hang on, Murdoch and Ecclestone could well both be in prison by then.

What a fantastic thought.
