Sad for his family.
Never liked him when he was in charge...he properly had a hard on for Ron Dennis and McLaren.
His private life also left something to be desired.

Offering the Mosley family condolences.

Like all of our lives, there were failures on many levels, but significant successes as well. There are many of us that follow F1 closely and were concerned about the direction the sport was taken by Bernie and Max.

In the end of the day, the sport is much safer now and has a world reach due to his efforts. While some may not agree with the ban of driver aided active suspension, ride height technology, etc, the ban brought the purity of the sport back from the brink of robotic control.
