Motor Sport News - - Have Your Say -

This week on our @Mnews­rac­ing Twit­ter ac­count we asked for your views on Bernie Ec­cle­stone be­ing re­moved from his For­mula 1 role. Here are some of the best posts. Bring­daspeed (@Rac­ing_lovinit) Have to move with the times. Honest rules for bet­ter rac­ing, not ridicu­lous en­gi­neer­ing re­quire­ments.

Chris Rock­ett (@Rock­ettmaaan) Re­spect due for a global sport built from scraps. Change needed as FOM setup poles apart from mod­ern busi­ness.

Remy Bergsma (@re­my­bergsma) Good, be­cause progress is needed. He will be missed for sheer knowl­edge of #F1 busi­ness though.

An­drew gs (@thetoaster22100) Bernie gave the F1 cir­cus a fig­ure­head, strong ini­tially but per­haps re­cently more about money than a com­pet­i­tive sport.

Daniel Jon Dar­bon (@Ddar­bon) Hope­fully we’ll now see real rac­ing and please get rid of the p*ss poor en­gines! Back to V8 or V12 scream­ers!

Gi­ulio (@Zf­grell) In these years F1 has lost a lot of ap­peal, but is it Ec­cle­stone’s fault or the FIA’S?

Tono Vil­lalo­bos (@jav­il­lalo­bosj) He was a key for #F1 suc­cess in the past, but any­way I don’t like Amer­i­cans tak­ing the busi­ness, it must be Euro­pean.

Vi­nayak Pande (@Vi­nayak­pande) The neg­a­tiv­ity he was bring­ing and the fi­nan­cial be­ing bro­ken it was af­fect­ing F1 as a whole. Good that he is gone. Neg­a­tiv­ity + bro­ken fi­nances = no Bernie is a good thing.

Dave Baker (@ds­bpho­to­graphic) The real prob­lem with F1 is not com­mer­cial rights, it’s the damn stupid rules the FIA im­pose. Roy Craig (@roy­craig99) I must say it will be good for F1, some of Bernie’s ideas are just too far from re­al­ity. I wit­nessed his start but look for­ward to the fu­ture with­out him. Reza Pars (@Reza­pars) The king is dead, long live the king! Maybe less fo­cus on bot­tom line and more on fans. Nicky Fox (@nick­y­fox22) Think he did a lot of good in the past, some things I strongly dis­agreed with, but think F1 is go­ing to be big­ger + bet­ter.
