Now that Ron's gone, I'm hoping they go for a 'new start' kind of approach, I'd like to see a modern take on the red/white liveries but failing that I'll settle for Orange

Liberty Media: Now that we own this company, we'd like it to make some money.

Ecclescake: Ah, see, that's not how it works around here, you see... errr... people give me the money... and erm Formula 1 sort of happens while I look for who's got the most money to give to me...

Liberty Media: How is this arrangement supposed to benefit Formula 1?

Ecclescake: I AM Formula 1

Liberty MEdia: Not any more sunshine...

Maybe the idea of F1 without the poison dwarf has loosened some purse strings?

Chase Carey: "I am excited to be taking on the additional role of CEO. F1 has huge potential with multiple untapped opportunities.

Scary comments if you ask me. I think the sport would be far better off winding the clocks back 10 - 12 years when we had V10's and a much more exciting sport.

Rose tinted visors there. During the V10 era we had some of the fastest cars ever, not making a single overtake during a race.

I think the tweaks to the cars need to be much smaller than the new for 2017 aero rules. Give the 14-16 cars unlimited fuel flow (but same size tanks), unlimited revs, 8 engines in a season, the new beefier tyres and they would have been properly exciting to watch. Now we're about to go back to cars that can't follow each other.

The rules flip-flopping of the last ten years (More downforce! Less downforce! More downforce! etc) has been a symptom of Bernie losing his grip and Todt being a wet fart.

As for his business comments, F1 is going pay per view, it's inevitable since Ecclestone's strategy of demanding ever more exorbitant fees from broadcasters is collapsing.
