bathurst77 should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Their race coverage this year has been terrible

Or maybe brilliant, they havent missed one pass, one off, one pit stop, one crash.

What really gets to me is I could be in Lulu's Merc this year.
I would only want half his money, and i guarantee I would have matched his results podiums, points, poles so far this year.

Talk about waste!

Due to the current crisis jokes are now rationed.. I am trying to maximise mileage of each one. Maximize tyre life

Also with the Williams thread I used the same joke twice once for first once for last... So I call it 5... 4.5 at least

Was just watching an old documentary about F1.Bernie was in it and said in the '70s he offered 10 F1 teams a stake in the TV rights for $100,000 for a 10% share.They all turned him down,so he bought them and the rest is history.

I wonder why they didn't buy a stake in the TV rights? Maybe they didn't see the potential of TV coverage as a revenue stream?

$100,000 back then would hav been double what they were paying the top drivers.
Was also interesting before Bernie stepped in the tracks were making a fortune from the racing.Each race was a seperate event,the track paid the teams to turn up,the track had TV rights for only for their race.

The First Concorde Agreement on January 19, 1981, paved the way for Bernie to sign a three-year deal with the European Broadcasting Union (EBU) in 1982, which ensured consistent coverage in F1ís biggest markets in Europe.

If drivers were being paid $50,000, the value of that in today's money would be $136,688.30 and that is adjusted for inflation. That doesn't seem like a lot. Under that agreement, 47% of the revenue from the TV rights was split between the teams, 30% went to the FIA and 23% went to the Formula One Promoters Association, which became FOM, ie mainly to Bernie.

I got the conversion from, https://www.dollartimes.com/inflatio...0000&year=1980
