In the world of Formula 1 there's nowhere to hide. Every lap time, every sector time, is there to be analysed and TV cameras catch every mistake. The performances of teams and drivers are ranked every two weeks - you're only ever as good as your last race.
And now Liberty Media faces a similar spotlight as its stewardship of the F1 business is judged.
Every three months it's obliged to publish F1's financial numbers for the preceding quarter, with an explanation of what they represent. As in the Bernie Ecclestone era, when they didn't reach the public domain, those numbers are of much interest to the teams, for whom they provide a clear indication of their future share of F1's revenues. But now that F1 is listed on the New York Stock Exchange, they are also carefully scrutinised by investors and Wall Street analysts.
