Analyse politique d’Ecclestone- qui parle d’elle-même sur la conception pour le moins simpliste des rapports de pouvoir de cet homme à l’immense pouvoir financier.
Asked whether F1 personnel would be safe in Bahrain this week, Ecclestone replied: “I don’t think the people who are arguing about their position are bad people, and I don’t think they’re trying to hurt people to make their point.
‘We’ve had all sorts of protesters – look at those complaining about Mrs Thatcher. This happens all the time. People use these things when there is an opportunity.’
He added:” The big problem is you have a set of people who want to have more of a say in the way there country is being run.
"It’s probably like our country, England, there are sectors there who sees things the other side are doing wrong and they would like things done their way. It happens worldwide.
I said to them [protesters] if you are going to achieve what you are trying to achieve, which is having control of the country, you are better off having control when the country is strong and respected worldwide than capture something nobody wants.
‘Who wants to capture Syria at the moment? It’s not a big thing to have. It’s a liability not an asset. It’s the same with Bahrain. If they can get to grips with it, and get more control of a country that is strong, not a country that’s weak.’
