Bernie belittles GP2 Asia
February 19, 2011 7 Comments
Amidst the many unfortunate comments made in the past days by F1 boss Bernie Ecclestone, especially as documented by Adam Cooper in both his website and Twitter account, one has greatly centered my attention… and should stir up some emotion in the GP2 organization.
In statements to the BBC (listen to the audio bit), Ecclestone said regarding the cancellation of this weekend’s Bahrain race: “And as you know we pulled the GP2 race. It’s the Asian series, so it’s not terribly important, and it doesn’t give a bad message to anybody…”
Hmmm… if I was Bruno Michel or a CVC board member, I’d be seriously pissed off. Better yet, if I was a GP2 team I’d be questioning what the hell the teams are doing there in the off-season (not just this year, but any year), selling impossible-to-sell seats to drivers and wishing this series was over as quickly as possible.
