Bernie Ecclestone's mischievous sense of humour has returned in the latest edition of his personalised annual Christmas card.

Bernie Ecclestone's mischievous sense of humour has returned in the latest edition of his personalised annual Christmas card.

Last year, the F1 chief executive poked fun at the McLaren-Ferrari spy scandal, depicting a nervous Ron Dennis being handed a gift-wrapped present by former chief designer Mike Coughlan.

And now, despite pushing for Max Mosley to quit amid this year's sex scandal, the FIA president is the butt of Bernie's latest Christmas joke.

The cartoon shows Mosley whipping an F1 team member, as his pitwall monitor depicts a woman in fishnet stockings and high heels.

Other F1 personnel are seen clutching sore bottoms, the Daily Star newspaper said, while 78-year-old Bernie brandishes bandaids.

The message inside the card reads: "Usual team punishment, just a special for Christmas. Have a happy one. Bernie."

Asked if he thinks Mosley will be offended, Ecclestone said: "I don't know. We'll see."
