The conclusions of the above, are drawn by Ecclestone after a talk he had with Lewis Hamilton’s father: “A couple of days ago I spoke with his father, and I realized immediately that he did not want to talk about the future of his son, so We only talk about business, “he said.

“Masi should have saved some problems and should have raised the red flag immediately after the accident. And we would have had a super final three laps. Things were very bad,” concluded Ecclestone.
