Although the purchase was made at the end of last year, the 68th Formula 1 championship that began in Australia is the first run by the American holding company Liberty Media. For this new stage, several changes were made, although the most brilliant was the decision to fire the Englishman Bernie Ecclestone, who was the boss of the Maximum. Now the new "boss" is Chase Carey (photo), a 62-year-old man who worked in various Yankee media.
“We want all the drivers to be stars. The engineers overtook the pilots in importance, so we have to focus on bringing the riders back to the fore, "said Carey in an interview with the British newspaper The Times.
Carey, obviously, had an opinion on the way Ecclestone works, who is still tied to the company that runs the F-1 as honorary president. “I try to have an open mind to at least make a decision based on what I see or hear rather than instinctively making a choice. Instinctive decision-making means that sport is a one-man show, and Bernie did this for decades, as I have observed. I saw how he controlled every decision, how he controlled the entire paddock. It seemed very difficult that this could change after having been like this for so long, "he explained.
And then he added: "It has been difficult for Bernie to leave the F-1 as it was his life and I respect him, but we want to run the business in a totally different way."[sam_pro id = "0_2" codes = "true"]
