What we’re talk­ing about at Tow­ers

F1 Racing - - INSIDER -

Bernie Ec­cle­stone is a di­vi­sive fig­ure, so we knew that mak­ing him last month’s cover star would at­tract a var­ied re­sponse.

Our es­teemed art editor, Frank Foster, opted for a stylish black-and-white treat­ment of Bernie to give the por­trait more im­pact, and it cer­tainly caused a stir among fol­low­ers of our Twit­ter ac­count (@F1Rac­ing_­mag).

Ewo (@effa64), was a fan of the cover, tweet­ing: “This cover is per­fectly creepy, I might buy it.” And For­mu­la1chick (@For­mu­la1chick) said: “In­ter­est­ing in­ter­view with Mr E. Some very good points.”

Not ev­ery­one was happy though. John-Luke Casey (@JLACasey) tweeted: “Given the pa­rade of hand­some driv­ers adorn­ing @F1Rac­ing_­mag, this month’s cover is like a visit from the bo­gey­man.” Mean­while, F1 Love (@f1love) re­sponded: “Please, no more cov­ers with Bernie on it. It at­tracts mice.”
