The Drood Report

Nick Fry is a jerk.

Heads it’s war, tails it’s war… *flip*… It’s war!!!!

Well well. Two updates in two days. That’s because something has interested me. Specifically this.

After Mosley’s histrionics about how the FIA may lose control of F1 if they kick his whore lovin’ ass to the kerb, King Bernie has gotten his hackles up. My favourite quote is this one.

“I sincerely hope that it isn’t a declaration of war because, if that’s
what the message should be, then we’ll have to defend ourselves,”

FIGHT! FIGHT! FIGHT! Bernie goes on to say he hopes Max doesn’t want a fight… I actually hope he does. I think F1 would be better served in many ways if the FIA’s influence was lessened, not least because of Ferrari currying favour with them.

Bernie seems miffed that Max has somehow dragged the future of F1 into all this, when the meeting on June 3rd is simply to decide if Max can stay around when everyone knows what he does in his spare time. (And as I said at the time, it makes you wonder what other skeletons may be in the mans closet being held over him.) I can understand Bernie’s annoyance. This about where and in whom Max has been dipping his wick. F1 has NOTHING to do with it. No more so than the World Rally Championship and other series. But Max has chosen to bring F1 into it, AND FOR THAT HE MUST PAY! (Apparently, according to Bernie.)

Politically it’s an interesting time in F1. A lot of people watch F1 just for the on track action and don’t like the technical side. I love the technical side. I also love the political side of the sport. Not the controversial crap like the spying nonsense last year and all the petty little storms that occur in so many teacups every season, but the grander political landscape. The FIA’s control, FOM etc… It’s all part of the whole glorious show in my opinion, so this latest wrinkle in the Mosley whore scandal, and Bernie’s ire being raised just makes things all the more interesting to me.

Remember once again folks, for those obsessive types like myself who must watch every minute they can, first practice is Thursday morning European time.

Can’t wait!
