Ecclestone Speaks: “we’ll have to defend ourselves”


Max Mosley unleashed a maelstrom of allegations, justifications and innuendos in a recent letter to the FIA member club presidents last week.He is now facing a similar letter to be delivered by the CVC and Bernie Ecclestone addressing the points in Mosley’s letter. The Times’ Gorman ran the story and quotes Mr. E as saying:

“I sincerely hope that it isn’t a declaration of war because, if that’s what the message should be, then we’ll have to defend ourselves,” Ecclestone said. “That is what anyone would do. I don’t believe that’s what Max wanted the letter to say. I don’t want to have a war with Max. I hope he doesn’t want one with me.”

In short, Max has fired the first public shot and now Mr. Ecclestone and the CVC are going to parry. Let the war begin but in the end game; I still have my money on Mr. E and the CVC machine. This was never about the power struggle in F1; it was about Max’s position in the FIA. Max has made it personal, public and hostile. He has awaken the dragon.
