F1, ok, what else is on TV? I can just see it, not, another six car race, as was the case at Indy, with two red horses limping around the track, while attempting not to get stomped by Red Bulls.

If it was such a good show, why did Tony George kick their collective asses out of Indy?

Yes, F1 fans and the F1 leadership are great cultured people, have they had any Nazi bases parties, lately. I will bet that Bernie has a closet full of SS uniforms and jewish girl school dresses. Speaking of the closet, I will bet old Bernie will sit on a pole any day.

Actually Tony George is a very astute business man who knows a good product from a bad product. He had three major events at Indy and only one of them was the weak sister and you know the old addage in business, you eliminate the weak link. F1 us the most overrated sports event in the world. They field from 20 to 24 cars with only about 3 or 4 with a winning capability, unless you have massive DNFs among the strong cars. The announcers do their level best to make this mundane event sound exciting as in statements like, "This has been a great race, we have had two on track passes for the lead". I would also like to quote the ever lifting, "Well, the lads are getting close to each other today".

Face it, F1 is great on technology and very weak on wheel to wheel competition.

So, I see that you agree with everything I said about that old "Back Door Boy", Bernie.

Voices in your head, I wouldn't doubt that for a minute, Speed interviewed Bernie on the grid yesterday and I just cringed, he's a real dumbass ..... but let's be honest as wierd as he is, he has taken F1 from being a pretty shitty show in the early 90's to being the most watched motor sports event in the world year after year, generating revenues Tony george could only dream of ... but I think on the subject of the nazi uniforms, you are confusing him with his mate Max Mosely, I think Bernie just wears the school girl outfits ...
