Bernie Ecclestone; where to start? The recent remarks by Ecclestone, his fondness for Hitler, will have for many people confirmed their loathing of Formula One, a sport not as popular in the wider world as imagined by either itself or its fans. Is Ecclestone a true representative of F1, or is he just crazy? You may say the whole world of F1 is crazy and the most expensive dull 'sport' known to man. Was it ever thus?

In one respect modern motor sport has a direct connection back to its earliest days, it is very expensive. Most other comparisons on a then and now basis will show that there have been huge changes; however, even F1's most ardent fans will admit that it's not always been for the good.
