According to Ecclestone, the Silver Arrows were not intended to pay the salary demanded by the British driver. That was how he made a radical decision.

Piquet was banned from the paddock because of his remarks to Hamilton.

Because Formula 1 needs a person of color, a Chinese and a woman,” said Ecclestone, who spoke in favor of Vladimir Putin.
