I don't know whether or not he is guilty. But I can remember how F1 was back in the 60's - and the coverage given on UK Television - IF we were lucky and there wasn't a "major" sport on at the same time, (like rugby league or county cricket), we'd get the start and the first 5 - 10 laps. Then off to football or some other sport, returning for the final few laps. Practice? you must be joking!! So, for all his faults, I am grateful that he took hold of the sport and kicked it into shape - both on and off the track. And remember, too, that it was his initiative to bring Prof. Watkins in. We'll never know all the facts behind the Gribkowsky/CVC affair, so it's hard to judge guilt or not. Being a billionaire does not automatically make him guilty - just a target for people's envy.
