The thing is no-one else has the levels of recent experience that his company do. Not just in building to the FIA requirements but also the buildings and infrastructure that go with it. But also advising on changes to circuits.

That alone makes his company difficult to beat if it went to a short list.

Apex are the only other company that even springs to mind for the short list.

Interesting item in the news, today.

You should post this on the race thread.

singular in this case (Vettel, as usual) since the FIA examined LH's data and stated he had not brake-tested SV, nor even slowed..

Your point was...?

Well what do we make of F1 since Bernie went? Does anyone else notice a ramping up of the "entertainment" side? Safety cars instead of VSC to pick up the small pieces of debris. Allowing cars to continue despite shedding said debris - an obvious black/orange flag on "normal" racing. And now paltry penalties for dangerous driving, because it gets F1 headline news around the world.

Just how bad was Bernie again? At least he was a racing purist, he didn't worry about ratings as long as someone was settling his huge bills.

This was only one race and the 8th of a 22 race season, so it's far too early to make a judgement. Wait till the chequered flag is waived at Abu Dhabi.

I wouldn't judge it on the actions of one race either. We've had many feelgood stories like with the Ferrari fan in Spain, Fred going to Indy and then joining the crowd in Canada. I think the human element is returning to F1, which was always hidden before

Don't confuse marketing and racing.

F1's marketing has improved dramatically, no question about that.

Racing hasn't. DRS is still there. Very few teams can aspire to podiums. Costs are prohibitive.

just on the racing side of things, Pirelli are acting far more sensibly then they did when they had the cover of BE and his magic mandate formula and as a result one could say the racing is better because the company is now more open to supplying the tire compounds the teams actually want.

dont know who gets credit for that though?

9 out of 10 teams scored points at Baku...is that a win for the Liberty era or BE era?

wut, lol?Bernie Eccelstone a racing purist? What was that mental medal idea he had again a few years ago?

I don't think the paltry penalty was a decree that was issued from Chase.

The words out of Liberty are good, particularly the attention to cultivating the European venues and the respect for its history. Eccelstone was the exact inverse of that.

But the proof is in the pudding. If there's a ramping up of gimmicks, then that's not good from the pov of what I want from the sport.

Bernie didn't care as long as he got good profit. That's why he always went for wacky ideas like medals, knockout quali, double points, sprinklers, shortcuts. Thankfully they are all confined to the scrapheap
