    What made me smile was the he was on a charge for bribery but German law allows to 'bribe' is way out - interesting! :-) Sorry, I didn't mean 'bribe' I meant pay a penalty fee to make the charge go away, no that's not right I meant ... it's a bribe!

    Probably not, his control over F1 is pretty tight. The only way he's losing it will be when he chooses to, nobody could oust him. Word surrounding F1 is that he plans on stepping down in the next 2 years anyway.
