F1 boss to clamp down on online media in paddock

After controversially rubbishing the power of social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter last week, the F1 supremo is now warning that online publications will find access to the paddock more difficult in the future.

He told F1 business journalist Christian Sylt: “Choose your race for free, enter the paddock, meet the drivers. How do you do it? Set up a website.

“I’m going to have a good look at the accreditation because it is a bit of a joke,” 84-year-old Ecclestone added.

Meanwhile, amid Marussia and Caterham’s troubles and with other small teams demanding talks with Ecclestone, the diminutive Briton sounds determined to plough ahead with plans to introduce third cars per team.

“We are talking about all the different options with third cars,” he told City A.M.

“The contracts just say they have to run a third car if it drops below the limit. We are talking about what the right way is to go,” Ecclestone added

    Bernie appears to be gradually losing the plot.
    It’s horrifying to see somebody slowly being swamped by the new way of living life……. let it be a lesson to us all 😉
    Instead of embracing new global media….. he’s now talking about shutting it out!
    He’s also been talking about ‘not wasting time, getting kids to start watching the sport, cos they can’t afford a Rolex’.
    These two comments alone, show him to be no longer capable of managing F1.
    Too old (it looks that way), too long in the job, and too much power.
    All this is preventing him from listening to others, and from questioning his own judgement.
    It’s not looking good, because only CVC can depose him…… and they’re only in it for the money….. and while it is still flowing their way…….
