Bernie sends a message

Formula One boss Bernie Ecclestone has posted at least one large message in Austin.

At U.S. 183 and Burleson Road, a billboard reads, “Stay Strong Gustavo! A lot to be proud of … Bernie."

Gustavo Hellmund, 66, is the father of Tavo Hellmund, an original founding partner of the Circuit of the Americas. Gustavo and Ecclestone brought F1 to Mexico in the 1980s. Gustavo has been battling cancer for a year and a half but is hoping to be on hand for the big race.
