F1 » Bernie: Korea was nearly canned – and Spa, Silverstone are at risk


F1 commercial rights-holder Bernie Ecclestone - the man who pulls the strings regarding the sport's annual calendar - admits Korea this weekend very nearly didn't happen, and casts doubt over the future of Spa-Francorchamps, Silverstone and Istanbul, too...

I don't care for Silverstone but SPA should be a permanent fixture on F1 calendar. The only reason Silverstone is on the calendar is because it's British GP and you can't do without one.

This man is a clown. The asian races are processional and boring and he keeps them but the classic tracks which make the sport he is getting rid of. The older this man gets the madder his decisions are.

Ecclestone's comments about the significance of the Olympics tell you how out of touch with reality the guy is. It simply doesn't get any bigger than the Olympics, when it comes to commerce and tourism. Everything else is dwarfed by it. In my opinion, Korea shouldn't have been cleared for this year...I have a real bad feeling about that race.
