Bernie is attacked...
Unfortunately, Bernie was not able to achieve a great deal as shortly after his arrival he was attacked by a dog at the house where he was staying and suffered facial injuries which were serious enough to require surgery.
The 65-year-old was back in England at the end of last week, and it is no surprise to hear that he was soon back in his office, although he is spending this week recuperating at his ski chalet at the chic Alpine resort of Gstaad in Switzerland.
It remains to be seen whether the incident will have any effect on Bernie's plans for the Las Vegas race - but given the money which is reportedly involved in the deal, it is unlikely.
