Chap, do you have any links to those reports? Even if they are written by Rubython, I'm interested and my googling only yield some backmarker sites. I've never read anything like that, but if you say so, you know I believe you. Nobody around this site is more familiar with F1 history, that I know...
What I find enlightening about Mosley and Ecclestone character (which I found trying to follow your googling recommendation) is the Examination of Witnesses, Mr. B Ecclestone and Mr. M Mosley
, by the UK parliament on the issue of tobacco advertising.
For young people here, it gives you an idea about how they work together
, Mosley and Ecclestone.
I find incredible how they denied any relationship to some companies. In the end, they attached a letter, saying they were sorry (outside the view of reporters), that they were mistaken and that they did know those firms.
As they say, Mosley and Ecclestone don't sew without a thimble... even if in the end they lost that particular case (altough Marlboro is still a sponsor, for the love of Pete!).
I don't know if Domenicali is at the same moral height (which I think is pretty low...
), so there is a big question about the solution we'll finally have to the issue at hand.
What we should be interested in is not in the "public outcome" of this case, but in the fine print
of the final agreement. There is no b&w picture in this kind of deals, as mcdenife suggests.
What is Amus, you guys?
