The races I’m the most looking forward to are Monaco and Belgium, they certainly know how to add a bit of spice. Being a Ferrari fan I also enjoy the Italian GP as well. And the addition of Turkey should be exciting. Roll on the 6th of March!

Ecclestone loosing grip on F1?

According to the BBC

A judge has ruled against Bernie Ecclestone in a boardroom dispute which could see the businessman lose control of Formula One racing.

Now is this going to be a good or a bad thing for the sport?

The “little man” has been the only one to have a grip on the sport, but yet only owns 25% of the company that ultimately controls Formula One. The other 75% belonging to banks who didn’t like some of Bernie’s appointments to the directorship of the company, and who wanted a more active role in the management of Formula One.

I guess we can only wait and see..
