Away completely from the F1 for a year, English Bernie Ecclestone has been in the news since then for its constant criticism of the management of Liberty Media, the company that now owns the category he ran for decades.
In his eagerness to discredit the management of the US holding company, the octogenarian businessman now pointed his canones to French Jean Todt, president of the International Automobile Federation. In his opinion, the FIA holder is not so involved in the management of the F-1 and that could be counterproductive for the Máxima.
“Jean is a very busy man, he has many aspects to worry about. He works 24 hours a day, but neglects Formula 1. His main project is road safety, but he must not lose sight of the sport. Liberty Media could distort and ruin the F-1 because it has no experience ”, Ecclestone said in an interview with the French newspaper L'Equipe. “I hope that Jean will take back the reins of the future of the category. The FIA must be the master of the kingdom ”, Agregó.
Ecclestone is currently working to achieve the dream of his life: to live in Switzerland.. “I always wanted to live there. But since I couldn't convince everyone who worked with me to move, we had to manage Formula 1 from London. Now I can do that ”, he assured.
Bernie also took the opportunity to comment on the Formula E, which many claim could be the future F-1. “It is still a very young category and it is very far from what a sport should be. The F-1 is something else entirely and I am proud to have made it truly global and to have taken it around the world. ", he finished.
