"F1 doesn't need young fans" - Bernie Ecclestone

He's starting to go senile now surely? F1 doesn't need young fans because the sponsors aren't appropriate to them...apparently. Right, so surely introducing a new market to F1 would widen the scope for sponsors then? Bah, I used to support him but this year he continues to worsen my opinion of him especially after the Marussia-Caterham situation.

I am just so amazed, that somebody could say something that STUPID.

I can't imagine made him think to say such a thing, because the truth is, F1 needs young fans to gain more support. I never supported Bernie and never will, he's completely lost control in running the Sport. F1 is going into the Garbage Can at the rate it's going, with Marussia sadly dying out and Caterham having to crowd-fund their way into Abu Dhabi, and with some of the midfield teams struggling financially as well. He's a pathetic piece of shit, in fact I rate him almost as bad as the people who run NASCAR.

Once Bernie got F1 into China, he went nuts and started forcing it into places like Bahrain and Azerbaijan. He's had more bad ideas than good the last decade. This is only another strike.

How come all the senile, batshit crazy idiots live to 100, and those with good ideas only live to half that age?

Arguably you can reverse the men's names and it would still be applicable.

At least Brian France's is kinda defendable, he wants NASCAR to be like one of the Big 4 sports in America, which all have playoffs. While the Chase has been pretty not so good, I think it's going in the right direction (There needs to be something that carries over from round to round though, and the structure of the rounds needs to be 2-2-3-3, not 3-3-3-1)

Bernie, on the other hand, is just a batshit crazy senile old man at this point
