Ecclestone suggest ten teams in Formula 1 grid

Formula 1 boss Bernie Ecclestone has suggested that just 10 teams on the grid would be perfect, he especially underlined that it’s ‘easier to handle’ the sport.

Also he recommended that Ferrari for long-term with sport, after the termination of HRT, the Bernie believes the field is still too large in his eyes.

“I’d rather have ten,” Ecclestone explained to Reuters.

“I never wanted 12. It’s just that ten is easier to handle, for the promoters, for transport. We’d rather have ten, so long as we don’t lose Ferrari.”

Asked whether he saw any possibility of anyone stepping forward to rescue a team that failed to score a point in three seasons, Ecclestone said: “I wouldn’t think that anyone would want to.”

Ecclestone also say again that the 2013 season would likely be 19 races, although there was still the possibility of Turkey taking a 20th slot that has been held open for July 21.

“I don’t know. I’m waiting for the response from them,” he said.
