Oh hey look, Formula One supremo Bernie Ecclestone is back to saying dumb things about women. Now he told Canadian radio station TSN Toronto 1050 that a female driver wouldn’t be taken seriously enough to make it in Formula One. That’s cute, because no one should take anything that comes out of Bernie’s mouth…
As Formula One heads into 2016, Bernie Ecclestone would like to remind you that the series he’s led into a repetitive parade of power unit penalties and predictable action is crap. Again.
While this year’s rain-soaked United States Grand Prix was indeed a thrilling race, it was not a good weekend for the event itself or its venue, Austin, Texas’ Circuit of the Americas. Horrendous weather meant F1 in Austin was “financially devastating” for COTA. Now the track has more bad news: Texas is reportedly…
The businessman running F1 known as Bernie Ecclestone held an impromptu roundtable for journalists at the rain-soaked U.S. Grand Prix yesterday. There are still no solid plans for more racing in America, and the Red Bull team might not even run next year.
Crap excuse for a deranged mutant and head honcho of Formula One Bernie Ecclestone now says that it’s possible for Red Bull to be sued if they choose to depart from the sport, according to a report from The Independent. A contract Red Bull signed to participate in the sport until at least 2020 is at the heart of…

Formula One is among the top sports in the world, and it is headed by demented flop-haired muppet and megalomaniacal billionaire Bernie Ecclestone. Today he took some time to stand up for ex-FIFA head Sepp Blatter. And for raw, uncut corruption.
Much like IndyCar, Formula One has also threatened to split multiple times, but for one crucial moment - ahead of it American counterpart - it did go separate ways for a few races. This is the story of the F1 series that never was.
Apple, Inc. recently announced a new Apple TV, and with it CEO Tim Cook dropped a bomb: The future of television is the app. In an era of dying cable television subscriptions, now is the time for Formula 1, for Bernie Ecclestone, to switch broadcasting models.
As time moves onward and governments clamp down on combating climate change the debate over the Formula of Formula 1 will become more divisive as the manufacturers tied to the sport each clamor for different things. Let’s break down the debate so we as fans can start to agree on what we want from the future Formula 1.
Bernie Ecclestone suggested that the answer to not enough women in Formula One would be to have a separate F1 championship for female drivers only. Yeah! Because "separate but equal" totally worked out the first time, right? </sarcasm>
Bernie Ecclestone's letter to the Rhein-Zeitung newspaper claims that a German Formula One Grand Prix even at the back-up venue of Hockenheim won't be "commercially viable" because "attendance has been so low for the past few years." Ouch.
Roy "The Weasel" James could never get enough cash to keep his racing career alive, so the Formula 2 driver took a Hollywood-esque detour that had him as a wheelman in one of the largest heists in UK history. And when he was released from jail, Bernie Ecclestone hired him to make trophies. And it gets weirder.
Bernie Ecclestone might just be the only man in the world who can bribe his way out of a multimillion dollar bribery case and then brag about it on his Christmas card.
Never mind that Formula One is already the most difficult event to get media accreditation for—Bernie Ecclestone wants to limit the number of freeloadin' Internet journalists at F1 races. How can someone so adept at trolling understand the Internet so little?
A letter to Bernie Ecclestone cosigned by smaller Formula One teams Force India, Sauber and Lotus explains just how lopsided the sport's distribution of commercial revenue is along with other key facts, such as how none of the smaller teams voted to move to the new V6 turbo engine.
We all know Bernie Ecclestone is a money-grubbing, chauvinistic asshat, but the crusty supreme leader of F1 just upped his Mr. Burns quotient by 1,000 in a recent interview, pointing out that 15-year-olds don't buy Rolexes and comparing Marussia and Caterham to "ladies with credit cards." Then it gets worse.
With Caterham and Marussia bowing out of the next two races due to financial struggles and other smaller teams becoming vocal about costs being an issue, Formula One overlord Bernie Ecclestone would like to let everyone know that he's fine with the idea of tiny, lame 14-car grids. I'm pretty sure he's the only one.
