Concorde Agreement era is over – Ecclestone

Linked In Share

Mar.7 (GMM/Inautonews.com) The era of the Concorde Agreement is at its end, according to Bernie Ecclestone.

Difficult and protracted negotiations over the sport’s highly secretive document, binding F1′s commercial rights holders with its teams and the governing FIA, are notorious.

The long saga over the newest seven-year Concorde is only just at its end, but according to F1 chief executive Ecclestone, there may be no need for another.

Writing in the Wall Street Journal, F1 business journalist Christian Sylt said technical and sporting matters are now decided at the new Strategy Group, comprising Ecclestone, the FIA and six top teams.

As for the Concorde, “I think everyone has forgotten about it to be honest,” Ecclestone said, “because with the agreement we currently have with this Strategy Group, we don’t really need it.”

The 83-year-old said it is not even true that a new Concorde was necessary so that F1 can be floated on the stock exchange.

“It was a peace treaty when it was signed. We have moved on and the whole structure has moved on,” said Ecclestone.
