Bernie & safety?

The only safety Ecclestone really cares about is the safety of his bank account... I say "you go Schumi", and if it's combined with a helmet research project, then even better for the rest of us!!! HAHAHA... nice one Scott22neale... I agree, maybe F1 fans will realise motorbike racing if far more exciting (& dare I say it takes far more skill)!?

So after spending a large part of his career trying to ram his opponents off the track, driving rather quickly in some of the worlds most powerfull cars, Bernie now offers his 'advice' along the lines of 'be carefull, it can get a bit tricky out there....' bit like Peter Kay telling us ice rinks are a 'bit slippy'....

I want a Whit interview

I'd love to hear a Jim Whitham interview with Schumacher! Would be brilliant. Agree with Scott22, think this is great PR for bikes. Schumacher was always someone we loved to hate - the German who was always beating our lads and not always fairly. However hats off to him now. He's certainly fast by most peoples standards otherwise he wouldn't get a licence to race on safety grounds. He's obviously pushing as hard as he can and having fun so fair do's to him. Bernie should get back in his very small box and concentrate on making F1 interesting again!
