  1. That’s two excellent articles from the US’s SpeedTV – I am impressed with how good a service they provide, particularly when I read about ITV’s failings at the moment. It really is time that Bernie recognised the brilliant job SpeedTV are doing to further F1 in the States and started to help them in that endeavour, rather than undermining F1’s popularity every year with his childish screams for more money.

  2. Bernie recognize ANYTHING that’s good? Consider this recent quote: “It is not vital to Formula One to be in the United States,” Ecclestone told told the Daily News. What he really means is it’s not vital for HIS Formula One Management company to be in the USA, Mercedes-Benz and BMW have each asked for two races here, for them it their major market! Instead we get a street race in India!
