Bernie Ecclestone has wasted little time in sending a reply to the GPDA after the drivers’ organisation yesterday wrote an open letter demanding change to the governance system that runs F1.
The GPDA letter, signed by Jenson Button, Sebastian Vettel and chairman Alex Wurz, said that the “decision-making process in the sport is obsolete and ill-structured.”
Ecclestone began his own letter with “Dear Gentlemen,” before making clear that he was in a mischievous mood by adding, “I’m not sure this is the right description.”
He then wrote: “It is not always easy to agree with you but you are correct. We must, as you have stated, urge the owners and all stakeholders of F1 to consider restructuring its governance.
“It is easy to analyse what is wrong, so why not think and come back on this. At least it is better to think before you wish.”
