F*** Bernie eccelstone

Crowd funding? Really? For 10M this scumbag could have kept those two teams in the last two races and quietly sorted this out over the winter. Instead this douchebag leaves hundreds unemployed right before Christmas and drags F1 through the mud. This is unconscionable. What a cheap bastard!!!!

I agree, wetpet. At the very least he could have given them a small advance from their constructer's winnings.

I saw a chart showing prize money distribution and it claimed Marussia only got €10m for 11th last year. No team could survive with that.

If they don't finish the season I'm guessing Bernie keeping their winnings so why would he help them? Bernie is pretty much the opposite of good corporate citizen and makes the wrong choice every time there is a choice so whether it's not saving a team or promoting dictators around the world you can count on Bernie.

I'm about ready to stop watching F1 races
This just might help me make my decision

I just heard that his young daughter is selling her home in LA for ~$180M

Times must be tough for BE and his kid.

Greed

Greed will surely be the reason for complete global failure . Return F1 to the glory days, when it was all about the racing, not so much the money. Let the teams build whatever car they choose, and just put a cap on what they all can spend...Is that so hard to do ? ..Shouldnt the TV rights be divided up pretty evenly ? That would seem to be fair, whenever there is good racing , even if its at the back of the pack, arent we all watching with excitement ?

There is no doubt that F1 would be better off without Ecclestone. It is most unfortunate that the German legal system took a bribe to let him off bribery charges instead of locking him up, as they should have done - one law for the rich . . .

Same thing has happened with the Americas Cup racing. Too much money, to few challengers. The change to use multihulls did breathe new life into The Cup, but it really is just about the money. Just ask Larry Ellison.

Breathed new life into multi-zillion dollar sea-going aero-cat-planes. Speaking of Americas Cup racing, last January on a Carib cruise, Judith and I took a tour that was an America's Cup race with the tour-goers being the crews. 24 of us were divided into two teams and motored out to two actual 12 meter Cup racers, Canada 12 and Stars and Stripes, Dennis Connor's 1987 boat that brought the Cup back to America. Judith and I got Stars and Stripes. Each boat had an experienced 12 meter sailor as captain and two experienced crew. The rest of us were each given a task to carry out during the race. One young woman's job was to time the start, calling out minutes and then seconds till the flag, so that we crossed the finish line as close to one second after the flag fell. After all the pre-start maneuvering, tacking and jibing to get the wind on Canada, we actually hit the line two seconds after the flag. Judith, who had never even been on a sailboat before! was the main sheet trimmer, I was starboard backstay grinder! It was actually a gas, a great thrill actually to race one of these magnificent craft around a three buoy course; race lasting about 45 minutes, and we won! A greater kick since back in 1987 Stars and Stripes' navigator, Peter Isler, and I were directors of the American Sailing Association and I was his lawyer in negotiating his agreement with the Cup syndicate.
