F1: New World Order...



Can I-T really be true? NO More Uncle Bernaughty! As I've been so overjoyed, just haven't had time to Scribble 'bout I-T!

Yeah, certainly Y'all are aware of the recent announcement a Fortnight ago of Liberty Media's completion of purchasing Formula 1 from CVC Capital, and that their first move was to graciously put a one Mr. Bernard Charles Ecclestone out to pasture.

As I'm not imploring his demise, it's just that for my entire life of following Formula 1, Bernie's always been in charge, and his Dictatorship has worn excessively thin uponst Mwah!

Having begun my F1 Odyssey three-plus decades ago underneath what ultimately became known as The Max & Bernie Show. Yuhs know when Sir maXXum', nee Max Mosley was Bernard's Whipping Boy, albeit he hadn't taken over for the departed Jean-Marie Balestre quite yet. As Monsieur Buhluster' would remain in charge of FISA for several more years before Mosley wrested control away from him...


Yet on another note, that timeless saying: Be Careful of What You Wish For! Is totally Front 'N Center on my radar screen regarding this momentous occasion. As newly installed CEO along with his existing title of Chairman, thee mustachioed "Chevy Chase" (Carey) is already throwing round such Bombastic Sound Bites as Twenty-one Super Bowls, Every F1 event should be a Super Bowl, and Bernie's Office is too Small for Us! Yada-Yada-Yada...

As noted, Liberty Media didn't buy F1 just to add I-T to its Portfolio, but like Mr. E's Numero Uno underlying motivation for moving the sport forward - Liberty Media aims to make a tidy profit from their acquisition...
