Bernie Ecclestone fires Vladimir Putin warning to F1 and questions Russian GP cancellation


But Ecclestone leapt to the driver’s defence after he was forced to race under a neutral FIA flag, claiming there is no direct link between the war and sport, before Mazepin was axed by Haas.

“It was absolutely the right decision by the FIA,” the 91-year-old told PA news agency.

“There are so many things being agreed by the world about this conflict between Russia and Ukraine. But I don’t think anybody has really thought it through, or got their heads around it.

“If there is a Russian driver in F1, what does it have to do with Russia fighting a war? There is no relationship there.

“The Russian athletes have nothing to do with this conflict. They are not part of it, and they have never been part of it. They just happen to be Russian.”
