One man took Formula 1, a peripheral sport practised largely by gentlemen players, and, in 40 years, transformed it into a global powerhouse. He s made himself rich the people who stayed with him rich. Others are aggrieved, believing they ve been cheated.
What happens when the Ringmaster is forced out? Who could succeed such a pivotal figure? Who should enjoy the rewards? Will old scores distort the outcome?
Some see the Ringmaster's departure as the end of an era, a chance to reshape, rebalance Formula 1 others as their Machiavellian chance to get back what they believe was theirs all along.
Will the scramble for control destroy this multi-billion dollar sport? Is this to be the end of Formula 1 as we know it?
