2017 update – it’s now getting on for mid-December and we haven’t seen a Christmas card from Bernie yet – and it’s not just us either, no one has received the usual “hilarious” cartoon cards this year… Bernie?! You can still enjoy the previous efforts below though.

Every year, like the rest of us, Bernie Ecclestone sends a Christmas card out to those in and around Formula 1. Unlike the rest of us, his cards don’t feature a robin in the snow or a Christmas tree.

Instead they are “funny”, satirical cartoons looking back over the previous year in F1. Thanks to Alan Baldwin we can now see the 2016 Ecclestone Christmas card, complete with a message containing his wishes for a more open season next year. Like it?

Scroll on down to enjoy his cards from previous years that we’ve found across the Internet. Nice one Bernie, have a good Christmas.
