What we’re talking about at Towers
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.”
