F1: “Back In My Day..” Bernie Ecclestone Rants

Former F1 supremo Bernie Ecclestone has chimed into the coronavirus discussion this morning, having a bit of a whinge about the season being “postponed”, how people need to “toughen up”, and what he’d do if he was still in charge of Formula One. 

While back in his hey-day Bernie’s legendary rants would have been published all over the world, it seems the 193-year old former used car salesman is a little bit less relevant these days, with his latest effort broadcast to absolutely no one as he muttered to himself while watching a bit of Coronation Street from the comfort of his London home. 

Talking to himself about the cancellation of six Formula One events so far this year, Bernie said it was “ridiculous” and “very very silly”. 

“Back in my day… we wouldn’t be cancelling anything.” he mumbled to himself. 

“Imagine that! Giving up money for the sake of a few spectators not dying. How ridiculous!”. 

“And now they’re inviting children to race with the F1 drivers on their bloody Megadrives or whatchamacallits! Outrageous!” he carried on, shaking his fists at the pet cat, who understandably fled the scene.

All the excitement proved a bit much for old Bernie, and he thankfully fell asleep in his special armchair before he had a chance to do any more damage.
