FOTA Still Bothers The Midget

He must be quite worried...he keeps whinging about FOTA being unnecessary. :hihi:


Formula 1 supremo Bernie Ecclestone has taken a fresh swipe at the Formula One Teams' Association - saying its members would be better off focusing on making quicker racing cars.

Ecclestone has always been sceptical about FOTA since it was formed in 2008 and, ahead of looming discussions to try and frame a fresh Concorde Agreement, he has once again questioned the benefit of the teams' body.

In an interview feature on the official F1 website with Red Bull Racing's Christian Horner, Ecclestone said about FOTA: "I try not to think of them."

Horner, whose outfit is a member of FOTA, added: "I also don't spend too much time thinking in that direction."

Ecclestone reckons that teams should worry little about the financial aspects of the sport, because it was his job to go out there and exploit the commercial opportunities F1 has.

"It is an unnecessary association of people who should put their sole emphasis on getting competitive cars on the grid," he explained. "It's just more of what they don't have to think of. I look after that so there are enough financial resources."
