It rather seems as though they have a proper businessman who signs the contracts, a refreshing change and much more like the way the US does business when it is on the ball. Of course Bernie, the second hand car bodger and rip off merchant, will not be used to proper negotiations. Even he will recognise a certain serious intention from the US. Time for the first balanced contract for Bernie, because if he does not sign it too, then the US has a very strong case for compensation, because the new contract, before the US changed the conditions, is not the same as the earlier one, issued several months ago. Nice to see Bernie in a cleft for a change, he will have to find another way to squeeze the pips out of them :) :)

Trying..YO! man you can't say things like that about Uncle Bernie
We fans know that old Bernie F1's #1 money junkie is an
honorable business man. Methinks that the old oil guys never
are going to put to much trust in Bernie..
'Unrealistic and unfeasible demands' That sounds like Bernie.
Sure would like to read that contract..

This race isn't happening Bernie will just take it some where else.
Whilst I don't know Mr Ecclestone personally, from what I know of him he's not use to people disagreeing with him.

Just say no to hecklestone. If F1 wants to be greedy let them do it some where else, the formula is going down the tubes anyways with their 'green' religion.
