Majority believe Ecclestone outstayed his welcome

30 January 2017

An online poll conducted by RACE TECH, suggested that former Formula 1 chief executive, Bernie Ecclestone, has out-stayed his welcome in the sport.

The poll was conducted in the immediate aftermath of Liberty Media’s acquisition of the Formula 1 Group and found that 66 per-cent of RACE TECH readers believed the departure of the now chairman emeritus was long overdue.

Upon the takeover, Chase Carey was announced as Ecclestone’s effective replacement as chief executive officer, with Ross Brawn and Sean Bratches appointed managing directors of motorsports and commercial operations respectively.

Opinions regarding Ecclestone have long since been divided, something he is known for being able to capitalise on.

The poll result indicates that the global audience of Formula 1 was ready for a change in leadership, with many eagerly anticipating further announcements from Liberty Media relating to future plans and changes.
