F1: Ecclestone Hopes Bahrain Problem ‘Blows Away’

Bernie Ecclestone has given an extraordinary interview to BBC Radio that could turn into a PR disaster both for the commercial rights holder and the sport itself.

Ecclestone’s conversation with the BBC’s Dan Roan – who at times seemed to barely believe what he was hearing – is sure to attract wide coverage. It does not paint him in a very good light at a time when many voices are calling for an immediate cancellation to the Bahrain GP.

Having indicated Thursday that a cancellation of the season opener looked likely, he took a different view Friday, saying that his people on the ground there have told him that the situation has improved.
