Bernie Ecclestone has agreed with Formula 1 drivers that the sport’s governance is in need of urgent reform.
In a letter penned by Ecclestone to the GPDA, leaked on social media, the F1 supremo has sided with F1 drivers.
The 85-year-old says F1 will consider an overhaul of its current governance and structure.
“It is not always easy to agree with you but you are correct in stating that the decision making process in the sport is obsolete and ill structured,” wrote Ecclestone.
“We must as you have stated urge the owners and all the stakeholders of Formula 1 to consider restructuring its own governance.
“It is easy to analyse what is wrong so why not think and come back on this. At least it is better to think before you wish.”
As a result, the current qualifying format will remain in place next weekend despite teams voting to scrap it Albert Park.
