Length of commercial rights[edit]

The article only makes mention of the 1995 14-year extension taking us up to 2009. However this article states that it was extended in 2001 taking them up to 2111, having previously already had the rights until 2011. Anyone know when the 2009-2011 extension was secured?

the 14-y-contract was signed in late 1995, but startet at 1997-01-01 (could not before, because of the running concorde agreement) and ended 2010-12-31. --Llankru (talk) 01:02, 8 February 2011 (UTC)

Formula One Promotions and Administration[edit]

I've merged Formula One Promotions and Administration here, because all the other FOG articles have been merged here, and it became FOM anyways, which is here. (talk) 07:39, 11 October 2008 (UTC)

I've removed the FOA wiki link under Bernies photo as it just redirects here now. -- (talk) 09:42, 27 March 2011 (UTC)

The Arithmatic's not right[edit]

If we believe in this article, then Delta Copco is 90% owned by CVC, 70% owned by JPMC, and "rest" to Bernie. Can a company have 160% of its share...?--Samuel di Curtisi di Salvadori 01:50, 22 June 2009 (UTC)

Sweeping curves device[edit]

The device shown before each F1 race has now changed. This, the sweeping curves image should either be updated or removed. Sk8er Boi (talk) 23:33, 13 August 2009 (UTC)


Petara redirects to this article, but is not mentioned anywhere. It should be possible to mention it in the "group companies" or "related companies" section - there are sources that can be found mentioning the company and its place in the hierarchy [1][2][3] although I don't know if they are still correct as they are from several years ago.

Petara was one of many holding companies that did nothing more than help Bernie and Co dodge taxes (or whatever those banking types like to call it), and I think it has been wound up now anyway. There is nothing to include here because it did nothing by itself, unlike the actual operating companies like FOM. The redirect could probably be deleted. QueenCake (talk) 14:40, 31 May 2012 (UTC)
