Tell us Bernie what is your ideal race track I know you have looked to remove some of the classic circuits which the fans love so if you were to design a track what would it be like?

It would be designed by Herr Tilke, of course. All V.I.P. boxes and no general public areas, in a country ruled by a rich dictator who's willing to give me boat loads of loot to try to justify himself on the world stage.

As for the track itself, I'd ask Herman to use the idea he did for Shanghai. It is shaped like the Chinese character shang. Just imagine a circuit shaped like £. Lovely, just lovely!

I've never had a Honda Legacy although in the early days I sold a few!
I'm sure future generations will say "Bernie who?"

Bernie being British and very successful have you ever wondered why you have missed out on a title? Sir Bernie has a certain ring to it!

I was hoping for something more like Bernie the Terrible.

Maybe Darth Ecclestone.

Talking of wallets how much cash do you carry and I've also heard it said you do not accept change?

I have no need for cash as I expect others to pay my way.You'd
be shocked to see people fall over themselves to get on my good side

OK the competition is now closed. Many thanks for all the interesting entries.  :good:

My favourite was the following Q&A.

Dare
Bernie I know you said you don't read F1 Forums but from
what I've heard you get a negative rating in most I've read.
How do you feel about most fans disliking you?
Cosworth 151
As long as they keep sending their money to me, I don't give a hoot what they think. Besides that, Universal Pictures has to pay me royalties for their Despicable Me films.

So congratulations to Dare and Cos. Please PM me with your address and the team of your choice and I'll send you some goodies.

Well done everyone.

One more pressie under the tree!  Congratulations Cos & Dare - enjoy the holidays!

How's this for a strange tradition...we're off to Zermatt to eat Chinese food with my wife's family and our kids.  3rd year now and everyone is really excited to go.   :DntKnw: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo:

That happened in Christmas Story...the neighbors dogs knocked
the turkey off the table so they went to a Chinese Restaurant.Sound
familiar?
