Former presenter of the famous TV show Top Gear Jeremy Clarkson has admitted in a published on its website DRIVETRIBE video, glad to Bernie Ecclestone’s dismissal from the post of head of management F1.
In 2011, Ecclestone was lit in the program Top Gear, when organized for Clarkson and his co-host James may and Richard Hammond race in a few laps on the famous street circuit in Monaco.
“I’m glad that Ecclestone goes, because Formula 1 will now become a show, not a means of enriching the already rich people,” said Clarkson.
The presenter added that F1 needs to take an example from NASCAR, given that Liberty Media, the new owner of the commercial rights of the championship, is a U.S. Corporation.
“Chase [Carey, Chairman F1] American, and they are able to do the show — continued Clarkson. — In NASCAR manage to fill 250-thousand stadiums. No such and did not dream!
Someone had to explain to the Formula 1 and its rich elderly leaders that the championship is for the fans. People should admire the sport, then immediately appear and sponsorship deals. I very much hope that the Americans will do the right thing”.
