Whether a participant or, dare I say it, a spectator - enjoy.

F-1

#1 Post by OFSO » Mon Jun 10, 2019 6:48 am

Cometely disappeared off the TV news channels which would formerly report on results, and most of my friends who used to watch it (and me) won't pay exorbitant costs for a subscription. I thought when Bernie left, his "screw every penny out of F-1" attitude would change but the new owners are worse. Grand Prix racing is now a minority sport.

..... for cheats and spoilt brats with rings in their noses and ears.
One thing you can say for the French, when civilization falls they have less far to fall than everyone else.

Of course, I must add a disclaimer :
My comment above regarding bratty F1 drivers with rings in their noses and ears was not directed at any F1 driver, living or dead, or anyone of any particular creed, colour, or ethnic origin.
The fact that a current 5 times World Champion may, or again may not be, of darker hued origin or appearance is of course entirely coincidental and no slur or aspersion was implicit or explicit.
