How quickly reputations shift in F1. It seems just like yesterday Liberty Media was the great white hope. These days it seems increasingly like a pariah.

  1. The football argument is decisive. No one bats an eye regarding the time schedule of any football match (be it local, national, european or world cup).

I hope in a few years we all learn to dismiss social media reactions in the first days after whatever "happened".
