I don't particularly like/dislike Bernie and I'm not sure if him being in charge for 4 decades has hindered or progressed F1, but I do think he has knocked on the right doors and got the right people to invest and to get some of the countries which are now hosting some races is a good thing.

We are never going to get away from all the corporate ponses that you see at the races, just getting drunk and not even seeing a car, but I suppose without all the sponsorship, F1 would not be as it is today.

I myself was one of those ponses in my first F1 GP, but after that one visit, I got the F1 bug and have been to many British GP's and all payed for out of my own pocket :s_thumbsup

He's has had over so many country's into investing in an F1 circuit just to ditch the venue the next year :(

Bernie, a man to be admired. A man who described women as kitchen appliances. A man who admired Hilter as someone who got things done.
Who thrives on screwing others in business deals and most seems to like working with similar personailities such as Vlad the Impaler Mk 2 (Putin) and Aliyev (President of Azerbaijan and son of the last president of Azerbaijan, in the best traditions of "democratic republics") to have new "European" Grand Prixes (to keep the agreed Euro quota up while loosing key ones in France and Germany) and in countries like Dubai, when if a woman is raped she is charged with having extra-marital sex.
Yup, Bernies a top man indeed.

What will be a most interesting read will be in few years time, when the unofficial biographies of Bernard E. are published once he will not be around to contest them.
