The Drood Report

Nick Fry is a jerk.

Former head of the FIA, Jean-Marie Balestre, passes away

Very sad to report the passing of Bernie’s former nemesis at FISA and the FIA. Max Mosley has paid tribute to the man, which is rich given how he shafted him to take his power. I remember reading an interview at the time with Max when he had just taken over and thought “What a nasty little man”. My opinion has not changed.

Autosport has more on Balestre for those who don’t know his place in Formula One history.
