Bye Bye Nurburgring

http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/formula1/30826192

quote:

Hockenheim will host this year's German Grand Prix, according to Formula One boss Bernie Ecclestone.

The track hosted the 2014 race but is supposed to alternate each year with the Nurburgring.

But Ecclestone, 84, told Reuters: "It's going to be at Hockenheim. We just have to amend the years of the contract. It was alternating with Nurburgring so we'll just take that out."

The official 2015 calendar does not yet specify a venue for the 19 July race.

The Nurburgring is under new ownership and Ecclestone added: "It can't be Nurburgring because there's nobody there."

Hockenheim staged its first Formula 1 grand prix in 1970.

Bernie's at it again. "Hmmm, contract doesn't suit me, Let's just modify it slightly to completely erase one of the venues that we had made commitments to... there, all better."

Is this more posturing from him for financial reasons, or why does he want to leave the ring?

I love how casual of a statement that is when it comes to this supposedly sacred legally binding piece of documentation.

"Welp, we'll just take the Nurburgring out... no big deal."

Too generic. That could probably apply to thousands of groups. At least this way we know the incompetence is related somehow to cars.

Webber was a hero, and the primary victim of said fraudulence. He should be made a saint for his patience, spending multiple seasons being abused by the Flying Finger and Horny Horner. I bet he gets PTSD flashbacks.

LOL Picturing him waking up next to his girl and going "Ugh, had the nightmare again".

"The one where they gave Seb your front wing or Multi 21?"

Also, I'm flabbergasted that there is a discussion about how someone is a bigger dick than Ron Dennis.

Given someone spotted Michael Schumacher wouldn't have got a super licence for his 2010 comeback the FIA have admitted they'll just hand out licences to whomever they like if they don't meet the criteria.

So yeah, that didn't last long. There's some gumph in the statement about it not happening often but we know that's bollocks already.
