Bernie has bankrupted quite a few racetracks over the years. Here is a short list: Nring, Indy, Donningham, Paul Ricard... Watch this space as his fees put tracks all over the world into financial trouble. Next up: Austin.

Nobody has the money 'cept Bernie and his bunch of cronies. To see the stories of how Bernies daughters live is ample proof that those who run F1 do not live on a planet called Earth.

It says a lot when the country with the reigning double WDC can't afford the fees. Perhaps the races at the traditional countries should be run and promoted by FOM. Just pay the track rental fee and let FOM get the gate money.

You are correct, Rob01. If the track owners (and some regional governments) were smart they would tell Bernie to get bent. He lures them in with their own greed and then kills them with a thousand cuts.
