    It is becoming clear that the old man's judgement is increasingly impaired: divorced from reality, he lives in his own strange world of indulgent fantasy; he confidently asserts peace and normality where everyone else sees only chaos, violence and death; responsible for the safety of thousands of people who dare not defy his orders, he puts their lives at risk for the sake of a single race weekend and his bountiful bank balance; surely the time has come.

    Isn't the only humane solution to put him in a home where kind nurses and carers can take the weight off his shrivelled shoulders and failing faculties? Come on, after all these years you know he deserves it.

    I still have no clue how he hold so much money and influence. He's a leach and should have been stunted (pardon the pun) decades ago.

    He cares only for his own pocket book and is ruining the sport to irreparable limits. He needs to go, but I don't know how it can ever happen without the sport imploding first. I despise what he has made this sport. I can't stand his greed.

    Be gone!

    Don't agree that it's his judgement that's out, he's as shrewd as ever and knows exactly what he's doing, he just has no conscience at all and will trample over anyone to make a quick buck. I took the involuntary euthanasia option. <ok>

    I don't know. If he goes, then dare I say it, we may get someone even worse in his place...

    He is a geriatric mess of a human now. He is nothing short of an embarrassment to the sport now. Yes he did a lot for the sport but he should have been gone at least 10 years ago now.

    Ok so Bernie has all the criticism and for sure he deserves a lot. His power extends beyond his authority. But he was probably correct when he said the FIA had to call it off, not him. So Jean Todt should receive 50% of the blame. He is in bernies pocket. For me, I would rather F1 had stayed away, but then few criticise F1 in China, or F1 In the UK when the IRA were active. So really we all have double standards, or at least could be challenged to defend a view. One has a poor human rights record the other having been potentially dangerous...might be biased since a friend was once injured by an Ira bomb. 1 man dead though, because of F1, on bernies and jeans conscience. That is the difference, for me at least.

    Just hope the olympics does not cost lives.

    That wouldn't be a bad idea.

    Initially, Bernie Ecclestone did a brilliant job bringing together with the help of Max Mosely the squabbling F1 teams during the late 70s and making F1 the big universal TV sport it is today and even managing to outwit the evil Balestre on occasion.

    Nowadays's of course he sees himself as invincible as do most of his type and that's his Achilles heel that could well bring him down, thinking one is invincible leads to errors in judgement, ask Hitler, Nixon, Thatcher, or even the dirty digger himself, Murdoch, so I don't think we need to wait long before he topples himself, with the help of an ambitious equally greedy successor, naturally.

    Yeah, I've just read that as well.

    CVC need to kick him out. His whole ethos and attitude will destroy the sport.

    He's practically saying that the sponsor's are wasting their time (Rolex, get it?) as most of the audience aren't interested in their products!

    I can't afford a Rolex either. Should I stop watching?

    "And, I don't know what the so-called 'young generation' of today really wants. What is it?"

    There is the nub of the problem. Go, Bernie. Just go.

    The stupid graphical adverts (mid race "Bernie Says Drive Safely") and lack of gravel traps piss me off.

    Unfortunately, Bernie, the young generation disagrees with you, and they are the unspoken majority who pay the bills.

    There's something very Big Brother about those messages, isn't there? Classic megalomaniac behaviour. Reminds me of the pronouncements of "Uncle" Joe Stalin.
