Earlier in the month, Formula One chief Bernie Ecclestone dismissed the financial troubles of three of the smaller teams competing in F1 – Force India, Lotus and Sauber – by comparing them to beggars and ladies with credit cards. Ecclestone apologized for referring to the teams as beggars but made no such withdrawal of the ladies with credit card comparison [which Lotus confirmed with their recent release of a video of on eof their trucks jumping off a ramp over one of their cars].
Meanwhile, Nico Rosberg won another pole – his 11th of the year – with a 0.4-second advantage over his Mercedes teammate Lewis Hamilton and will start at the front of tomorrow’s season finale in Abu Dhabi.
