Eccelstone gets Mugged

Has anyone else seen the news that Bernie Eccelstone got mugged yesterday? I had a real good laugh at this one. I am glad he's okay, I don't wish any ill will on anybody, but after what he said about Jenson Button in Brazil I thought he was kind of asking for something like this to happen to him. Apparently they stole approximately 200,000 British pounds in jewelery from his girlfriend.

Totally agree! I had the exact same thought when I read the news. I felt his comments on JB's attack in Sao Paulo were very flippant. "Someone tried to sell him a hat!". Well, maybe these nutters in London were also trying to sell Bernie a hat? Karma?

OK, maybe a bit harsh, and again, I don't want to wish ill on Bernie, and certainly don't want to condone what these nutters did.

What kind of idiot walks around wearing $314,000 in jewelry? I don't care how much money you have, you have to be one ostentatious nutjob to do that.

Maybe when the muggers approached him, he thought they just want to sell him some hats.

I think they said that his six foot tall giant of a girlfriend compared to Bernie was the one wearing the gems. It would be funny to see him all blinged out though. Lol.

It's rough but I love F1. That being said I hate the way it's come in the past couple years and he's largely to blame. That man needs to be relinquished of his duties in one way or another

That sucks for Bernie but considering the way he talked shit about Jenson Button being attacked in Brazil, I don't have much sympathy for him.

Same, though I don't really wish anyone harm, it is karma at its best.

We can all be glad that Eccelstone never decided to run for public office!
