I am guessing that the posters have no memory of the mess that F1 was in the FISA days. I and ALL of my collegues in F1 owe Bernie a great deal. Our sport is profitable and undeniably THE most advanced form of motor racing.

F1 may not have the most exciting racing each race but it is the only series that intetests me enough to watch every single race. Perhaps that it sometimes leaves you wwnting more is part of why it is so popular.

I doubt that bribery will be the reason that he steps down. I am surprised that Bernie is not grooming his successor himself.

I hope he will choose right person to run Formula One.
If you like or dislike but he is running Formula One very well.
F1 needs right person to run be cause if you look at FIA which really screw up after Jean Todt takeover from Max Mosley.
I don't think Jean Todt is right person to be President of FAI. So I don't want wrong person running Formula One.

yes luca the guy who has had limited success since replacing Jean todt as team principal is right, Bernie the guy who single handedly built f1 into the international empire it is today is too far out of the times, Funnily enough this all started when Bernie said ferrari where stupid for appealing the vettel case which was common sense with a green flag marshal in plain view, but i think after bernie laughing off their wacky 3rd car idea was the real thing that made steam come out of lucas ears.

Many of you clearly have no concept of the state of F1 before Bernie got hold. And justifying your hatred by slagging off his appearance just shows the weakness of your case. He may look like Andy Warhol on his way to a Steven Hawking lookalike contest but he's made so many good calls over the years, often by 'floating' an idea, letting it bounce around desperate places like Crash Net and the either going for it or moving on. Like Alan Hinton, his value will be most evident when he's gone.

I see Kimi as the person to take Bernie's place someday. They are both 'heroically taciturn'. :) Kimi gives thought to and means what he says, not 'PC'. Kimi is about 'racing', pure & simple. Neither Bernie nor Kimi much give a rip what others say, & that is also an important trait. :)
