Pay of a bribe with a bribe.

The power of money over justice in action.

Guess this means CVC can sell F1, good for them but it also means we're stuck with Bernie.

What a nice corrupt sport.

Paying off a bribery charge with another big bribe smacks of powermongering for the fat cats . I mean if you willingly pay 60million Quid to get out of jail free you are admitting that you are pretty guilty regardless what you and your lawyers spiel .

benignlyindifferent: Hmm. Maybe they will build a circuit for which Bernie will secure the commercial rights for the next decade. Unbelievable!


Yeah... with a fee of about £30m a year....

On a Tuesday afternoon MR E will leave the court as a free man, to anybody with a head on his shoulder that looks like a case of bribery to end a trail of bribery.
Der Spiegel has published details about the state of MR E trial that reveal the farcical nature of the undertaking, they summarized the article “MR E will avoid being sentenced for bribery by bribing the court.
The trail being held in Munich, which is in Bavaria, which is as corrupt as Uganda. Bavarian officials have been in the thick of corruption scandals since post war Germany, for bribery, abuse of office, nepotism, tax evasion, fraud and white collar crimes.
Meanwhile those that believed that he was at the end of his F1 road will have to wait for his natural demise, but I cannot guaranty that he did not took care of that and bribed the grim reaper too.
