Those chaps in charge over the period of Williams collapsed are rapidly being dumped. Hell knows what politics is like down in that Williams camp, but recent changes are now beginning to bear fruit.I hope they put the right man in his place.

Is the Lotus really quicker than the Williams or have they just got better drivers? After two races, Williams have pushed/seperated from the man who couldnt close a deal with Raikkonen.

Parr was instrumental in the Sky deal.

Shortly after he said:

"(Bernie) believes that if he sells the rights to the BBC in the UK, for example, they should have the rights to everything. They can re-play it on their iPlayer system, they can do the internet, they can do everything. He thinks that's the way to maximise revenue. I think it's time that we challenge him ... We're not getting what we want ... We need to change a few things ... When Murdoch buys us, it's all going to change."

He encouraged the BBC to seek out Sky, and Sky rather than any other broadcaster.

I wonder where he'll turn up next.
