What a stupid idea by Bernie Ecclestone. Shortcuts in F1? Good grief!
Ecclestone proposed the idea during a media event last week. “I’ve tried to push the teams with a number of proposals. Imagine a shortcut which a driver can use five times every race,” he said. “It would stop people from getting stuck behind others and be good for TV.”
Jenson Button quickly dismissed the idea out of hand. Mr. Ecclestone, why not work on the actual on track racing, implementing rules for passing, not introducing hazards on the track?
