Bernie Ecclestone ready to resign ?

Probably not, but he is stirring the waves. He seems to be well aware that stripping Raikkonen of the 2007 F1 title and giving it to Hamilton may seriously damage the already spy damaged reputation of Formula 1. This is what he said according to The Guardian just a day before the McLaren appeal hearing:

“If anyone thinks that’s the best thing for Formula One then I’d have very serious thoughts about me retiring. I don’t think anything’s going to happen if it goes through. In my opinion, they don’t have to change the results of the race – it’s an infringement of the regulations. On the same weekend, McLaren used an extra set of tyres, which they shouldn’t have used – that was an infringement – so maybe if anything does happen at this Court of Appeal, maybe they’ll treat it exactly the same as the tyres.”

Not many expect a ruling that would change the outcome of the Championship. But for the F1 supremo to come out and openly say whay is the desirable outcome of an appeal hearing and even suggesting how the case should be handled seems to be a bit unappropriate…
