Formula 1 boss Bernie Ecclestone has been commenting lately about a more unified front with FIA president Jean Todt in an effort to make changes to the series.
The new F1 Strategy Group has been unable to reach consensus on changes needed to safeguard the sport and now Ecclestone has offered his most direct comments when asked if the F1 Strategy Group should be eliminated telling AUTOSPORT:
“It’s bloody difficult for the constructors to come up with anything.
“If you were Mercedes you wouldn’t want anything changed.
“At last month’s Strategy Group meeting nothing was decided – not even the date of the next meeting.
“We could have voted on something then and put it through, but nothing.”
The fact is, there is little narrative needed to understand his feelings on the efficacy of the strategy group and he said many years ago that the teams could never run a series as they cannot agree on anything. It seems he may have been correct.
