    Formula 1 Head Bernie Ecclestone toys with idea of buying the Nurburgring - No show for meeting due to fear of arrest

    By now you should know that the Nurburgring is bankrupt. A lot of rumors are going around as to who will bail the track out with Formula 1 head Bernie Ecclestone throwing his hat into the mix. It was reported he might buy the track outright or host a Formula 1 race foregoing sanctioning fees to help out the track. As it turns out according to a newspaper report by Die Rheinpfalz, Ecclestone is not willing to forego any sanctioning fees or organize any Formula 1 race on the Nurburgring at his expense. Classy guy, eh?

    If that was not enough, Ecclestone stood up the current ring bosses who were expecting him for a meeting regarding the tracks future. Ring officials Jorg Lindner and Kai Richter traveled to the Hockenheim and waitied for Ecclestone. And wait they did with Ecclestone never showing up. This led to speculation that Ecclestone did not show for fear German prosecutors would order his arrest regarding the recent bribery investigation that has led to a jail sentence for one banker (Gerhard Gribkowsky) who accepted Ecclestone's bribes.

    The lawyer for said banker stated to Bild newspaper, I wonder how in the future he can fulfil his duties in Germany, in Europe, indeed in the entire world if the prosecutor should apply for an international arrest warrant."

    This story is getting very, very interesting to say the least.

    $#@! Bernie, him and Jon Todt, the FIA Director are ruining F1 and what it is about. I would never let him near the Nurburgring. Good news is the German government has authorised a loan to save the 'ring.

    Yeah, bunch of $#@! thieves. The F1 is boring nowadays. No thinking out of box, no breath taking features, no new technology. So MEH!
