While I respect Ecclestone as a businessman, to be honest the authorities do have a right to voice concern about the cost of hosting the race because its essentially taxpayer money being spent. To further add a day will come when taxpayers say enough is enough when it come to funding sporting events especially with the world technically still in a recession. If anything, this very much highlight why I don't like the idea of publically funded sporting events as there are tons of private/corporate dollars out there willing to pick up the tab. Look at NASCAR and Indycar for example when you have IZOD and Sprint technically bankrolling the championships. If anything this is the direction F1(and MotoGP) need to go.
