Bernie Ecclestone, the head of Formula 1, has put the boot firmly into the testicles of the London 2012 Olympics by claiming in a BBC interview that in comparison to Beijing it will be a massive let down and would be better off scrapped.
Then, to add fuel to the fire, he called for an earthquake so that the Games would have to be cancelled.
"There is only one way down for anyone involved. If it goes well, you're not going to get any credit and if it goes bad you're going to get the blame."
When asked how London will cope following Beijing, he said:
"With great difficulty. I can't see how anyone can follow that.
We've got to do something completely different and not try and do a 'Las Vegas' if you like - or we are going to look idiots."
Asked what London could do he said:
"I suppose pray there's going to be an earthquake or something so it doesn't happen."
I wonder if he would have had the same opinion if Formula 1 was an Olympic sport?
