Ecclestone Unveils 2010 Edition of "Bernie's Crazy Idea!" - January 15th 2010

Bernie Ecclestone, the commercial rights holder of Formula 1, revealed his trademarked crazy idea for 2010 earlier this week following mass anticipation in the media, online web forums and the local TV store near to Ferrari President, Luca di Montezemolo.

“My crazy idea for 2010,” Ecclestone paused to build up further suspense, “Are short cuts for overtaking!”

Ecclestone explained that every track should have several ‘short cuts’ built on some of the corners that allow faster drivers to overtake a driver holding them up. Each driver would be allowed to use a shortcut five times during a race thus creating more tactics and more overtaking.

Respected Formula 1 analyst Keith Wilson was highly sceptical of the suggestion:

“The whole point about overtaking is that it is meant to build up suspense during a race and it is meant to be hard. If a driver has to put no skill into the overtaking move itself then you may as well just give each driver 5 times to summon the blue flags on any driver in front of him.”

Bernie Ecclestone devotes a great deal of time thinking about ways to improve the spectacle of Formula 1

Bernie’s Crazy Idea is set to become an annual tradition; in 2009 Ecclestone suggested a Medals system to determine the World Championship – an idea so crazy that most pundits agreed it would be difficult to top. However with 2010’s suggestion Ecclestone has demonstrated that there really is no limits to what he can imagine.

Random Perspective employed former Spice Girl Geri Halliwell to pose as Ecclestone’s daughter and get the details on the ideas he is mulling over for 2011:

  1. Blindfolded Drivers
  2. Qualifying laps to be in reverse gear
  3. Chequered flag to be replaced with a stunt ramp through a giant ring of fire.
  4. Drivers not allowed to sleep or go to the toilet between qualifying and the race.
  5. Middle stint to be driven by driver’s girlfriend.
  6. Champagne spraying to be replaced by paintball gun fight.
  7. Kudos points for drifting, handbrake turns and 360 degree spins.
  8. Viewers to telephone in and vote off one car every 5 laps.
  9. Nigel Mansell to make comeback.
  10. British Grand Prix to be held at Donnington
