Changing Room Chat: Ecclestone slams rose-tinted view

BERNIE Ecclestone has suggested the need for a budget cap in F1, believing there are many who still view the sport through rose-tinted glasses – an ironic turn of phrase given that the motorsport supremo himself wears tinted glasses!

The 81-year-old said: “There are still too many people in Formula 1 running around with rose-tinted glasses. They obviously like to see the world as they want it to be – wonderful – and not how it is.

“My advice to them is to change the colour of your glasses and tighten your belts.”
