Ecclestone: F1 is ‘crap’

Bernie Ecclestone calls F1 crap

Formula One boss Bernie Ecclestone says F1 is crap and with the sound of those engines, and with the Mercedes' parading around at the front with no competition, he's absolutely right.

"The problem is, I see things as they are and not the way I want them to be," Ecclestone was quoted as saying in the latest issue of the German magazine, Motorsport. "Do you think it's right when Fernando Alonso — you've probably heard of him, he's a former world champion — is at the back of the starting grid? Is it right that a driver changes his engine, qualifies in third place and then has to start from 13th? Is that right?

"Formula One is crap. Right now, we need to look at these things. The public has no understanding for that. They watch the race, know that someone has qualified second or third but is now suddenly starting from the middle of the grid. And why? Because they've changed their engine. Or their gearbox. We can solve this problem, but we can't wait several years."
