F1 condemns former boss Bernie Ecclestone’s comments about racism

Formula 1 have said they “completely disagree” with comments made by the sport’s former chief executive Bernie Ecclestone about racism.

Responding to remarks the 89-year-old Ecclestone made in an interview with CNN, Formula 1 said in a statement: “At a time when unity is needed to tackle racism and inequality, we completely disagree with Bernie Ecclestone’s comments that have no place in Formula 1 or society.

“Mr Ecclestone has played no role in Formula 1 since he left our organisation in 2017, his title Chairman Emeritus, being honorific expired, in January 2020.”
