It's a Sad Sad Day! When one of Grand Prix Motor Racing's staunchest supporters nation is unable to hold a world class Formula 1 race due to financial difficulties, which surely must make the top brass at Daimler AG wince?
As reportedly Hockenheim circuit's boss has said Nein in regards to hosting a hastily arranged German Grand Prix at his venue this July. And who can blame him? After the atrocious lack of Fans attending last year's event at the once mighty circuit.
As Don't blame Hockenheim, as it seems like a long running farce over the STUPENDOUS price of F1 tickets, Ja Volt!
By now Y'all know that this year's German Grand Prix is truly dead, with the famed Nurburgring saying Nein to FOM's monetary demands...
As originally I was loathe to scribble my thoughts upon Uncle Bernaughty's perceived "Heavy Handedness" in this whole mottled affair... Yet, doesn't it seem a 'Wee bit ironic that Messer Bernard Ecclestone goes on trial for bribery in Der Fatherland, writes a cheque for $100m to wash his hands of the entire affair...
And then viola, "Wink-Wink, Nudge-Nudge," both the Nurburgring and Hockenheim circuits are unable to come to financial terms with Mr. E! 'Co-inky-dense; Uhm? And not even the might of Daimler AG willing to step in and cover portions of the certain financial losses was not enough to sway Uncle Bernaughty? Just sayin', as Don Henley once crooned: "GET OVER IT!" Niki Lauda, as your cow-towing to Bernie Ecclestone is disappointing to say the least! Like really, NO solution could be found? Oh Never Mind!
