whoever did this either knows something that we don't, or is a complete fool. FAIL.
Given its Bernie who promoted this idea and implement it...i'd take the later....he's also the one put the Malaysian GP at 5pm local which eventually there's only 1/2 race coz heavy downpour....but he justified the TV ratings in Europe went up 300% and gained more than 50% market share...something like that...so its all about $$$$$$
