Ecclestone wants to “tear up the rule book” of F1

The Formula One Group chief executive, Bernie Ecclestone said that he’s far from being satisfied with the current situation in his sport to the point where he wants to “tear up the rule book” of Formula 1.

“I think we need to tear up the current regulations – both the sporting and technical – and have a good look.” Ecclestone told Sky F1’s Martin Brundle.

“What we’ve done in the past is cross out one bit of the regulations and put another piece in like patching up a really old house that should be pulled down. It’s about time we pulled the house down and had a good look.”

More he told Russian broadcaster RT – “I think what our biggest problem is that you and I know pretty well who’s going to be the World Champion this year. It can’t be right. People come to watch racing, to watch anything, and they don’t want to know the result before it starts,”

He is also praised current world championship leader, Lewis Hamilton of Mercedes, calling the British driver “very talented.”

However, he stressed that Hamilton’s car “is so much better than anybody else’s… so there might be a whole bunch of people down there, that are maybe as good as him, and they never going to be exposed for people to ever know. That’s what’s wrong.”

F1 has returned to the US in 2012, with races held every year in Austin, Texas, but Ecclestone says that he’s “not very enthusiastic about America.”

According to the Formula 1 boss, the Americans’ belief that they are “the greatest sort of power in the world” doesn’t correspond with reality.

“It’s difficult, because, they are a big island, so they are a bit isolated; they are slowly starting to learn what other people in the world do,” he explained.
