Former Executive Director of Formula 1 Bernie Ecclestone has denied rumors about the creation of alternative series.
A few days after the resignation of 86-year-old Briton, there was talk that in 2019, he plans to lead a separate championship as opposed to “the Royal race” with new owners Liberty Media.
“I want to dispel the rumors about the alleged plan to create a series to compete with Formula 1, – quotes the statement of Ecclestone to Reuters. – I built this championship for nearly 50 years, I’m proud of it, and the last thing I want to do is hurt him.
The new owners will be able to manage differently than I do, because I had to act in the financial interests of the shareholders, which is perfectly normal for the Executive Director. Although it was in the days when I owned 100% of the shares.
I would like to have such a great opportunity, as chase Carey now. I hope the fans will appreciate it because he is interested in how to invest in the sport.
I am very touched by the support and grateful to all who have dealt all these years.”
