Bernie thanks fans

Bernie Ecclestone issued his thanks to tens of thousands of British fans
who overcame the obstacles of a chaotic weekend to make it to the British
Grand Prix.

As the sunshine finally started to break over Silverstone after days of
rain the Formula One supremo who has been underfire all week for holding
the race in April had a word for more than 130,000 loyal spectators who had
made it to the Northamptonshire circuit.

"I want to say how proud and grateful I am that they made the effort to get
here and I hope that after everything they have a great day in the end," he
said.
