Bernie Ecclestone indicted for bribery

Amazing how for ages he has said openly that he paid the bribe to avoid being investigated for tax avoidance by HMRC and yet HMRC haven't had the gumption to actually start an investigation
Wonders if some HMRC staff have been wined and dined on 'investigative' trips to various Grand Prix....

I know it's weird he seems to think that everything is ok because he was paying it to the guy to keep him sweet

So.. Y'know.. A bribe?
Mr Ecclestone denies bribing Gribkowsky, and says the money was intended to stop the banker from exposing him to a UK tax inquiry.

It's all dirty. F1 is just a carnival now. It isn't a sport anymore.

He's trying to multitask between F1 and Cricket, blame the cutbacks...
