They want to sell. They're not going to subsidise anything there. They're not going to put any money into it. They want to get rid of it. I haven't made any 'yes, I'm going to buy' or 'no, I ain't going to buy'. We'll wait and see.feedback

It's obviously different. As you know, I was very hands-on, 24-7. Now it's getting used to not being under so much pressure.feedback

Mar 25 2017

Most of the people I've dealt with are good close friends.feedback

I think people have got muddled up a bit. These people have thought and said, and Chase has said, that I hadn't done a very good job in the last three years. I thought I had, CVC thought I had, and I managed to produce $1.5 billion-a-year income, which made their shares worth a lot of money. Maybe if I'd have done a lousy job people could have bought the shares cheaper.feedback

Not at all. I know the way the world operates. I would have asked them to work with me for a bit, wait for a year and afterwards say 'has it worked, not worked?, Not worked? Sorry, you'll have to leave,' or whatever. But different people operate companies differently, obviously. I think this is very much the way American companies operate. Let's be absolutely sensible about it: they bought the car, they wanted to drive it.feedback

I'm envious of him because he can do some of the things that I wanted to do and couldn't do because I was here to run the company and make it profitable. That's what my job was as chief executive. I think he's got the luxury of maybe not having to worry about those things, but maybe he thinks that he can make the fans happy. But the only way you really make them happy is to have good competition.feedback

The product that we have had is not a product that is easy to sell and therefore it's not easy for people to embrace. But if this year the racing is good, it will be easier for sure. And that's what I hope happens.feedback

I have built the championship over the last near 50 years, which is something I am proud of, and the last thing I want is to see it damaged.feedback

The new owner of the company will be able to carry out the administration of the company in a different way to the way I had, which was to produce financial results for the shareholders, the normal actions of a chief executive. This I have done for the different shareholders over the last years and also when I owned 100 percent of the company. I would have loved the luxury of what Chase Carey, the CEO, is able to do. I hope the F1 supporters appreciate this as Chase intends to put money back into the sport.feedback

I have enough money to be able to afford to visit a race.feedback

Jan 24 2017

My days in the office will be somewhat quieter. Maybe I'll come to a Grand Prix. I still have lots of friends in Formula One.feedback

Jan 24 2017

I'm proud of the business that I built over the last 40 years and all that I have achieved with Formula One. I am sure that Chase will execute his role in a way that will benefit the sport.feedback

Jan 06 2017

Two other tracks have contacted us and we are keen to keep a British Grand Prix, there is no doubt about it, we want to have one. As far as Silverstone is concerned, it's not in our hands.feedback

I don't think anybody is going to beat Lewis. Nobody would want to buy tickets and go to watch a race or watch on television Lewis disappearing from us when the lights go off, and probably lapping the field a couple of times. It would be bad for everybody and bad for Lewis as well, because I think he wants to win fair and wants to beat somebody.feedback

Dec 02 2016

It's possible I suppose, let's see. They've got new management now at McLaren. Maybe he's fed up being there and they're fed up having him.feedback

Dec 02 2016

I think not. I don't think Seb would want to be with Lewis.feedback

Nov 22 2016 - Singapore

F1's stand is to hopefully continue in Singapore. Everybody is happy to be in Singapore and (we) don't want to lose Singapore.feedback

Nov 22 2016 - Singapore

My words were taken in a funny way. What I said was simple - no decision has been taken yet.feedback

Nov 12 2016

There was a court case yesterday where he wanted to overturn what had happened and he lost the case unfortunately, which is a pity because we don't want to lose Ron.feedback

Nov 09 2016

There are still two races to go and anything can happen in this sport, so I need to focus my energy on the factors that I have in my control.feedback

Oct 23 2016

I think he does a good job. Anyone that chucks him out is stupid. He's dedicated. I think we ought to try and support him so they don't get rid of him.feedback

Oct 21 2016

It's not the sort of contract I like produced. But we've done a lot to help them along because I more or less talked them into it in the first place. So we'll try and keep them going.feedback

Oct 21 2016

They are professional meeting people, the Americans, aren't they? They love meetings. Seven in the morning.feedback

Sep 06 2016

To open the American market you need to have 10 races in America, sell tickets cheap and have a huge number of hamburger stands – but then it would not be F1 any longer.feedback
