Bernie Ecclestone has gone.
Oh yes, Liberty Media has just handed him one of those honorary advisory jobs without configuration nor power which he will not accept.
He will always be remembered by all of us as the boss of Formula One and for this he cannot be just a counselor, Bernie is a dictator.
I enjoyed my 25 years in the Formula under his reign and if I am who I am today it is because of him. And like me, many of those who are still part of this World Circus must be grateful to the man who invented the sport and made it big.
I spend much of my time now teaching youngsters to handle drivers and sponsors, looking forward to having them appreciate and love Formula One as much as I still do. For this I fully understand the change and welcome it. At the same time I am sad about Bernie’s departure, but accept it.
Thank you again Mr. E.
