Ecclestone Confirms Presence to Nurburgring

Having apologized for his shocking comments made last weekend regarding Adolf Hitler, one of world's greatest dictators, Formula One supremo Bernie Ecclestone can finally move on with his life inside the F1 paddock. Although it was initially rumored the 78-year old Brit will miss the Nurburgring race this weekend due to political complications of his comments, Ecclestone yesterday confirmed he will attend the race as scheduled.

Needless to say, his words caused quite a stir amongst Jewish groups worldwide, with the most feverish hit-backs coming from organizations in Germany and Great Britain. Until admitting he was an idiot for making those comments, his very meeting with the German politicians – scheduled for this weekend, at Nurburgring – on the safeguarding of the Hockenheim circuit was in doubt.

Zak Brown, chief executive of the agency JM which represents many formula one sponsors, insisted however that Ecclestone may be forgiven, but in no way forgotten. Brawn reckoned that Bernie's comments surfaced in the media after a series of other political and sporting scandals inside Formula One, and the sport surely needs a “clean up” in due time.

Bernie often says things with shock value. It has definitely made the news in the US,” confirmed Brown, who did not make any suggestions about how this semi-scandal will influence F1 sponsorship in the near future.

CVC, the very firm who owns Formula One and whose financial backing belongs to Jewish groups in an overwhelming manner, issued a short comment on the Ecclestone-Hitler saga.

We fully concur with the unreserved apology that was made by Mr Ecclestone yesterday,” said a spokesman for the aforementioned firm.
