Bernie about future of Monza: Que sera sera
Formula 1 boss Bernie Ecclestone warned the officials of Autodromo Nazionale Monza about the deadline until the end of February to resolve the future of the Italian Grand Prix.
One of the most popular tracks in the history of sports could stay without its main event after the Italian government decided to reduce funding, Italian Grand Prix will go on this year, but there is still no agreement for the future.
Monza circuit officials are desperately trying to find a way to keep the race in the calendar, as the race in Monza wasn’t held only once since 1950. Fans all over the world will surely be disappointed if the legendary track loses its place, but Ecclestone has no mercy.
Que sera sera
“It’s Italian. A lot of conversations at the moment and not much action. They said to me a few months ago: ‘Everything is sorted out, we know exactly where we are and it’s all agreed and no dramas.’ And now I heard yesterday it’s become very political. I don’t know what’s going to happen. Nothing we can do about it. The only people that can sort this out are the people that are currently involved in Italy. They can take as long as they like, provided it’s by the end of this month,” said Ecclestone speaking to Reuters.
So, after Germany losing its race at Nurburgring, another historic venue can lose its place. Perhaps the time has come to change the people who run the competitions, rather than change the rules, tracks and other things which made Formula 1 most popular racing series.
