Bernie Ecclestone insists he remains “interested” in plans to stage a grand prix in and around London’s Olympic stadium.
The proposal was once again making headlines in Britain on Tuesday, as the London Legacy Development Corporation confirmed the bid is among four others to utilise the stadium in the wake of the forthcoming Games. The F1 bid was submitted by a company called Intelligent Transport Services.
“If they were to get permission to do it, then we would be more than happy to do something with them,” F1 chief executive Ecclestone is quoted by the Guardian. “But we have nothing to do with putting in a bid.”
The 81-year-old was also quoted by Bloomberg news agency: “We’ve told them it’s a good idea and we would be interested.”
