Bernie Ecclestone has echoed Max Mosleys concerning fearing the survival of formula one. Mosley, the former FIA president, was a famous close ally of Bernie Ecclestone till his reign end in 2009 Earlier this week, he warned that the sport is in a real threat and it may collapse of necessary measures are not taken.
Now, speaking to a German newspaper, F1 chief Bernie Ecclestone told that he would not watch Formula 1 finished itself because few people made a mistake. The 84 year old, who looks F1 to revert to their V8 powered engine days, sees the brand new turbo V6 engine regulations as the biggest platform. He added that the fans want the volume, the teams want the low cost, and even the racing was better.
But as Max earlier pointed out, there could be no alterations unless every team agrees unanimously and that is a difficult thing to happen.
Toto Wolff, of Mercedes, told that for them, the current technology is an important part of their involvement. Their marketing strategy aims on the hybrid technology of formula 1. He added that the situation is not that bad. Ferrari has caught up. Of course, they are still the benchmark but the others are coming closer.
He added that the viewers are down but not everywhere, in England for example. Perhaps Germany just has a ‘formula 1 hangover’.
However, Ecclestone said that some teams just could not see the urgency for a change. He said that one can make up for mistakes, but they are not even trying. They are sitting and waiting this this to get disappeared.
